  Les Halles Düsseldorf
by IceBear7
 
 

A visit to Les Halles makes the perfect Saturday morning. The flee market is set up every Saturday in an old railway station, partly without walls (there is a roof...). The athmosphere is very French, there is a lot of rubbish for sale, wonderful crazy stuff, but also very nice old and new furniture, cheap books - and fooood! They have a nice restaurant area with armchairs 100 years old, a jazz band playing, have a coffee after searching the market for stuff you don't need or you realise you always wanted to have...

UPDATE: The whole market is in danger coz they want to start building apartments in the area, but there is also talk of moving the whole thing to a new location - good, but it won't be that close to my own apartment again...

LATEST UPDATE: Les Halles is closed now :-( the new location is going to be at the old Schlachthof, but it's not going to be there for long. They are starting in May. We all hope it's going to me more or less as nice as the old one.

What to buy: everything and nothing

What to pay: depends on your haggling skills
