Market

In der Markthalle am Karlsplatz. Erbaut von 1912 bis 1914 vom Architekten Martin Elsässer, 1973 vor einem Abriss gerettet, seit 1974 unter Denkmalschutz. Auf über 3000 Quadratmetern werden hier einheimische und exotische Lebensmittel, aber auch Blumen angeboten.
The Stuttgart Market Hall near the Karlsplatz. The beautiful market hall was built from 1912 to 1914 by the architect Martin Elsässer. In 1973 the hall was rescued from an impending demolition. Since 1974 it is a listed building. Local and international food but also flowers are offered on more than 3,000 square metres.

I love old fashioned markets but we no longer have them here.

These kinds of markets are lots of fun. Have a good week, Steffen!

A lot of German wine must be in the market too.

Nice shot, Steffen. I could spend days wandering about in that place! What a treasure for Stuttgart!
