Located in the middle of the central square. There are several stores (among many others that offered wood carvings, woven scarves, crystals, etc) that sold beautiful amber pieces (I couldn't resis a ring). The place has a special atmosphere.

I visited with my friend now in December and it was something magical about that place, all the homemade staff around, hot food, hot wine and other things around make it nice walk and pleasure to be there. It is charming to visit before christmas and all the horses passing make it really cool.

The Cloth Hall sits in the middle of the Main Market Square and is very hard to miss. The ground level is open on the ends and in the middle and is lined with stalls on the inside. Here you can find a variety of local handicraft like lace, embroidery, lacquer, carvings, amber and knickknacks. The outside edges have shops... More

We stayed right near Cloth Hall and visited it on a number of occasions. It's a great place to pick up anything from traditional slippers to amber jewellery. You can also pick up gifts for family and friends, like magnets, caps and dolls. Considering it's in a prime location, the prices are quite decent for the goods and you have... More

This is at the centre of the square you really can't miss it. Such a beautiful building with the architecture and the surrounding areas. Loads of stalls either side selling all kinds of things from jewellery to hats and scarves. Definitely a good idea for the woman who loves shopping.

Had a walk through the cloth Hall to visit the variety of Xmas market stalls set up inside. Lots of stalls with lots of crafts and Xmas gifts, however, very repetitive, most stalls selling identical products. Was worth a look at, wouldn't make a b-line to return.

Lots of little permanent market stalls with loads of variety of goods. Restaurant and museum also there. Not a place to spend a lot of time in but still good to see.
