Like many European countries there are generally two types: the food kind and the flea market kind, although some tend to merge a bit of both. Which can be a good mixture as there’s nothing better than to go out looking for some fresh veggies and instead return with a second-hand wooden chair. If you love vintage and old design you could conceivably spend hours in the German markets.
Food lovers likewise can find themselves in for a special treat. Most markets have food stalls with takeaways or finger food you can lounge around and snack on. You can find some great German breads and home-made cakes, or bretzels if you’re into something more salty. Really a bretzel needs a beer to wash it down though, and being that it's Germany you will find plenty of local beer available.
There are also Christmas markets as in most of Germany. If there’s a reason to brave the winter weather then the Christmas Markets (Weihnachtsmarkts) are it. They contain gift ideas, traditional German Christmas foods and decorations in magical fairy-tale settings.
