Making The Night day
Those who stroll through the Flea Market in the Night hours are well advised with a Flashlight. Because the Stalls are sparsely illuminated and after 10 P.m., Treasures are difficult to identify as such. Real Professionals are even out with Headlamps. But for the Majority of Visitors, the Hustle and Bustle shifts after 10 P.m. anyway to the Alleys and restaurants around the Flea Market in the old Town of Konstanzer and along the Rhine. Boisterous Party vibes are now gaining the Upper Hand in the City. Locals and Groups of visitors mingle to a colourful Hustle And bustle, new Acquaintances are made and Flea Market Finds Are surveyed. It is not for nothing that the Flea Market is described by the Constanzers and Cruslingers as „the Bourgeois festival par excellence” and exudes genuine Folk Festival Character. Especially in the historic District of Niederburg there are a Variety of traditional Wine Desks, Cocktail Bars and smaller Pubs, which invite you to Linger and make up the Flair of The old Town of Konstanzer. However, if you want to spend the balmy Summer nights in the open Air, the Beach Bar of the Konstanz University of Applied Sciences with a view of the Rhine is recommended. Colorful Cocktails, Beach Loungers, Sandy Beach and live music from the DJ Are definitely a holiday Atmosphere during a Visit. But also with many small Stalls around the Flea market line, the physical Well-being is taken care of and the Rhine Invites you to Linger with its many small Jetties.
