I used cinder blocks for my raised bed garden. They are cheap (sometimes free), easy to build with and never rot like wood. I use the holes in the blocks as planters for things that like to be root bound like herbs and to keep strawberries from overtaking the garden.

There has to be somewhere in Europe for that galvanized threaded pipe. There are two types of the threaded pipe, regular galvanized or black steel. Black steel is usually used for natural gas and galvanized is used for water especially in boiler systems. You can recreate the look somewhat with copper pipe and fittings, but it doesn't look quite as rugged. If you use copper and don't like the color of the copper, just paint it.
