A wide range of items can be purchased at these markets. From just your average junk to finding some amazing antiques. Everything is very cheap and if you're not happy with the price you can compromise with the stall owner most of the times. My partner and I picked up some awesome bargains on our way back to Stuttgart and... More

If you are traveling, do you really have room for most of the'stuff' sold here? A great way to spend a few hours but it appeared that all the hidden treasures had been well picked over.

with a small amount of money you can easily refurnish your home making it a hipster place. In this square you can find everything, from beautiful, vintage tea cups, to cloths. the working hours are: week day 6-14, weekend 6-15. make sure to come early in the morning because then you have more choices and nicest things.

Not worth your time. Visited on a Wednesday at noon. Most of the merchandise was junky and uninteresting. Few if any redeeming features.

I went to the plaza at noon and at 7 am the next day. It is indeed better in the morning with nicer finds. What was interesting was that the older sellers had cheaper starting prices than the younger sellers!! (As I look like a tourist!) I did the blank stare, walk away after they gave their counter offer and... More

This place is mostly a junk market, but if you want to experience an old fashioned market this is a place for you. There is a lot of old stuff, but there are also some decent finds if you look hard enough! You need to be ready to bargain. I really couldn't be bothered to rummaging through everything, so we...

Friendly dealers, lots of older items. Many of the same items were spotted in the antique shops along Rue Braes. Loads of fun and one of the few things open early in the morning!

This is a great flea market -from antiques to bric a brac - prices are cheap - we visited in the pouring rain but the majority of stalls stayed open - it is surrounded by cafe bistro restos with a good selection to choose from ...

My husband is a huge Tintin fan so we stopped in here for a look around and to relive a bit of the action from "The Secret of the Unicorn"! It was just great. Blankets on the floor covered in an array of junk/treasure depending on your point of view. No denying the atmosphere of the place. The surrounding streets... More

I always go to the market and this time it was better than ever..... a huge array of sellers on Saturday at lunchtime (the market opens early in the morning). So much to look at, and the vendors seem happy to let one haggle on price!
