What could be better than a huge, temporary market with old-timers yelling out orders? Right. It's a great experience, and you also get some pretty good breakfast there. Do go; it's so worth it.

An old hall with interesting architecture, placed right on Elbe's bank. Here you can try some fish specialties. Unfortunately, it is opened only once a week, on Sundays.

A really old and ornate building turned into a music venue. We went on a Sunday. It opened at 0530 with live music. All the locals were drinking and dancing until it closed at midday. The band were great and there was a superb atmosphere

It's a really nice local market where you can get a variety of food and cheap clothing. I wouldn't say it's a must, but it's definitely worth a visit. The fish market is open on Sundays 5.00 - 9.30. However, we got there around 9.30...More
