This is directly across from the train station. Has a few little curio like shops and some little cute store selling cute handmade items. Not a destination but certainly worth a wee visit in passing.

It was lovely to see some hand made ‘craft’ but all too expensive. Felt a little overwhelmed by the owner of the metal/silver shop.

There's an array of craft stores here from woodwork to toy shops. It wasn't particularly big but worth a visit. I suppose it's a bit like a German Christmas market for all year round.

A small place filled with nice stall like shops selling and showing the local talents. A charming place to visit and excellent place to have a quality local snack and buy quality local souvenir.

Small square shaped alleyway with hand crafted goods, well made but on the expensive side. Quaint bar at entrance with locals and tourists.

Came to the Christmas market and chanced upon this gem. There are just a few shops, run by the crafters, who are so proud of their work! Did more shopping there than at Christmas markets. Especially loved the pewter shop, where I met the crafter.

Beautiful cobbled courtyard housing a variety of craft workshops. Cute little traditional shops selling lovely handmade items from pottery, glass, pewter and many more, with the actual crafts people there selling their wares. It's very authentic and atmospheric. There's also a few places to eat,...More
