    Suche eine passende Übersetzung. Könnte es sein "To take a walk across(?) the market (etc.)"?

    Hmm, ist to stroll bzw. stroll als Nomen nicht eher gemütlich "bummeln" bzw. der Bummel, als ein (andächtiger) Spaziergang?
    Es stimmt, zu "Spazieren über den MARKT" passt es super! Aber beim Spaziergang über den Friedhof...hmm.

    If I was staying within the boundaries of the place, I would say take / go for a walk in the market, in the cemetery. If I was going in one side and coming out the other, I would say across the market, cemetery.

    "across" would be possible but would imply that you went fairly directly from one edge/side to the other.
    -I strolled across the market to meet my friend. (leisurely, but with the purpose of getting from one side to the other)

    "about" implies a certain leisureliness and/or aimlessness or, paradoxically, thoroughness. In either case, it takes some time.
    -I strolled about the church-yard waiting for my friend to finish her prayers.
    -I walked about the market looking for spices

    Isn't it wonderful how many options you have when you don't have a context to constrain you?
