It's a pretty square but there are only a few stalls. Fresh fruit and veg is good quality but also very expensive. Spent 36€ on 2 bags of produce.

I come from Vienna where we have Christmas markets on every square and more... so I was very excited to visit the mother of all xmas markets! Whilst we were smitten with the architectural side of the town, our beautiful hotel and the restaurants we ate in,... More

we visited the market as part of the Christmas Market. The selection of items that are available is amazing - so fresh! You can find baked goods, vegetables, seafood, fruits, sushi and the list goes on. Definitely want to take the time and find what you are desire!

Nice friendly market in the middle of town. Good on offer include, Pretzels, Bratwurst, dried fruit, biscuits and fresh fruit and veg. Nice to stop and grab a snack or hot drink. Closed in the evenings 1800hrs ish, which seemed strange.
