FAQ - Frequently asked questions
You have lost or forgotten something? All lost items can be picked up the next day at the blue gas station of Poland Market Hohenwutzen. Exception: Money and credit cards, which have been forgotten at one of the gas stations, will also be kept there and can be picked up there again.
You can pay in zloty and EUR at all market stalls and restaurants. If you pay cash in EUR, you will also get EUR back as change. At many larger market stalls and restaurants, as well as at gas stations, you can also conveniently pay with EC and credit cards, as well as your smartphone.
Our tip: When paying by card, always choose payment in zloty (payment without conversion), the conversion is then made at the current rate of your bank. This is usually much cheaper than paying in EUR at the guaranteed or offered rate.
Only at our gas stations you can pay directly in EUR as in Germany, so you will not incur any exchange losses or fees.

In order to help you find your way around the market and quickly find your favorite merchant, since 2015 there has been an organizational system at the market consisting of streets and a house number assigned to each market stall. The numbers start at the southern or western end of the respective street. Even numbers are always on the right, odd numbers on the left. The large market hall is divided into the "lower ring" on the first floor and the "upper ring" on the upper floor. In addition, there is the small market hall with ground and upper floor as well as the (former) border building just after the Oder bridge. All streets are marked on the market map as well as signposted on the market. In addition, each market stall has a sign with the street name and house number.
For your safety, the entire market area is monitored by camera and illuminated in the dark. In addition, a security guard is on site 24h.
There are various carts distributed on the market grounds, which you can use as shopping carts free of charge. After use, please simply return the trolleys to one of the parking spaces or to the shuttle bus stop.
For your own safety, "flying traders" are not allowed at the market. These mostly offer counterfeit or low-quality goods and approach you in the parking lot, at the gas station or at the entrances of the market. Sometimes they also offer to clean your windshield or guard your car.
Please do not accept such offer and inform us on the free hotline 0800 5533232 or our security guard on site.
All dealers authorized in our market have a fixed location with appropriate marking and registration.
The sale of puppies or other animal puppies is not allowed on our market. Animals are not toys and an acquisition should be well considered.
