The old Fish Market is just over the bridge from the Markt - pass through the arch next to the Gothic Town Hall, over the bridge and there it is. The market was originally an important place for trading fish but now, whilst fish is sold, there's also a lot of craft and curio stalls as well. The stands are covered and the fish is displayed on old stone slabs. There are restaurants and bars around the outside of the market. The "Vismarkt" is open daily between 08h00 and 13h00, except on Sundays and Mondays.
