Flea Markets on Public Holidays

The long overdue reforms to Germany's shop opening hours at the end of 2006 brought with them, in Berlin at least, an odd side-effect: due to either an oversight or bad wording, Flea Markets in Berlin are no longer allowed to open onpublic holidays. This is particularly stupid because those days are particularly popular with visitors and vendors alike.

However, it's just been announced that the law will be modified soon, and sanity will prevail.
