Police in the German city of Potsdam are investigating a device filled with nails found next to a Christmas market.
The device, that also held batteries and wires, was sent to a pharmacy in the city south-west of Berlin.
Police initially said there were explosives inside, but then clarified there was no detonator.
Germany is on a heightened terror alert, a year after 12 people died in an Islamist attack at a Berlin Christmas market.
The device was found near Brandenburgerstrasse in the centre of Potsdam, which has a number of other Christmas markets.
