I wanted to write a quick post today about the treasure trove that is the Nuremberg night market. Taking place once a month, we had never been able to make it to one until this week and I am so glad we did! Quite literally a treasure trove of old and new pieces, designer and high street, I'd say about 95% of it's offerings were women's fashion.
With a bar area offering everything from soft drinks to cocktails, you could have a seat and a break from shopping and enjoy the great atmosphere created by the DJ. There was also a Thai Streetfood buffet, 5 euros for a bowl that you could fill with whatever and as much as you wanted. It was almost like a cross between a night out and shopping, pretty perfect eh?
I was on a super strict budget of 10 euros and only if it was something I really thought was worth it - potentially something I could wear on my upcoming holiday to Italy (It's less than a month now, I literally can not wait!!). I managed to pick up a lovely white playsuit from H&M with lace inserts, still with the tags on for only 7 euros!
One thing though, the Parks which it was held in is a pretty big area with lots of different rooms, and almost every single room was jam packed. It starts at 6 and the shopping runs till 12, I think the bar was open till 1 if you wanted to stay for a few drinks and a dance after. We arrived at 7.30 and it was already in full swing so if you are going for some hard core bargains, then I would definitely arrive early.
I'm not always a fan of flea market type getups, but the addition of the street food and the dj really helped create a unique shopping experience. If you are ever around Nuremberg when one is on I would definitely say pop by for a nosey. You can take the Ubahn Line 2 to the station Rennweg then it is only a few minutes walk from there.
