Neighborhood: City Center

This large flea market takes place every week on Petersplatz. Apart from the autumn fair and a few holidays, it is staged every Saturday. Hundreds of people come looking for a bargain when the weather is good. Antiques masquerade as unwanted rubbish and there a lots of records for vinyl junkies. There are also books, furniture, ornaments, cooking utensils and much more. There is also a wide range of prices, from ridiculously cheap to unbelievably expensive. It's worth haggling.
