A Stroll at the Nurnberg Flea

Nurnberg Flea Market

Last month I took another trip to the Nurnberg Trempelmarkt (flea market).  I scoured the old town looking for nothing in particular, I just love going to this flea twice a year.  It was a nice day at first but it ended up pouring by the end of the day.  I have to say that I've been to this large flea market in Nurnberg two other times and this time I was very unimpressed. 

The quality of items I usually find at this market are usually decent antiques and treasures mixed in with junk.  But during this trip it was all junk.  I had a really hard time finding anything.  The only thing I got minutely exicted about was the old Polly Pocket I saw.  I figured surely I'd come around a corner and find something I want but it was a lot of old clothes, garage sale leftovers, and nothing really of worth or beauty.  I was bummed by the turnout this year.  The next large flea in Nurnberg will be in September and I really hope the vendors step up their game next time because I have found some lovely things in the past.

The only thing I picked up were a few trinkets costing no more than 3.50 euro.  A ring dish, hedgehog toothpic holder, and vintage postcard with a postmark on the back.

 It wasn't all bad though. They also had their farmer's market going on so we indulged in some of the fresh foods there.  We ended the day by going to the Nurnberg Volksfest (hence the large beer), where they had the pastry above called Langos that I tried tried for the first time.  It's made with fried dough and either cheese and ham toppings or sweet toppings.  Pretty deilscious.

  1. This looks like such a fun place!

    Thanks again for joining the link Up this week!

  2. I'm not a big flea market person, but they are fun. I've been to the Nurnberg one and it was fun because of the way it winds along the square.

  3. I love your finds! I tasted Langos in Hungary...wonder who really can claim ownership? :-)

    1. Hungary, Austria, Germany, Poland, and Czech all seem to have several foods in common.

  4. Nürnberg is a very beautiful town. It is the capital of Franken. And if you like Nürnberg and you are interested in History you should watch the Documentation about Karl der Große - he also was a North-Bavarian-Man he was king and he made Europe to Christian Continent:
