Markets

As befits a trading city rich in tradition, the market is always open in Nuremberg. As well as the daily farmers' market, the Easter market is held on the central market square, along with the Autumn market and of course, the Christmas market.

A very special highlight for visitors from near and far is the Trempelmarkt that takes place twice a year in Nuremberg's city centre, the biggest and best flea-market in Germany.
