While strolling along the small Pegnitz island past the lovingly restored ensemble of houses it is hard to believe that this was the pig market in the Middle Ages. The Nuremberg Trödelmarkt, located between Unschlittplatz and the Karlsbrücke (Charles Bridge), was originally a trading area - for junk. Today this 1000 m² square accommodates cozy little shops offering the unusual. Here you will find extravagant jewelry stores, individual boutiques, assorted wooden toys and amusing living accessories.
