Every last weekend of the month the Agra Grounds transform into a giant second hand market, both indoor & outdoor. You’ll find furniture, household items, books, reclaimed (industrial) materials, DDR memorabilia etc. The market is very popular and attracts visitors from all over Saxony and beyond. Warning: may cause traffic jams, so consider cycling there or taking a tram. More info
