Flea Market: Berlin Flea Markets (Berlin, Germany)

For bargain hunters or those who are just happy to browse, a stroll through one of Berlin´s bustling flea markets is a great way to spend a sunny Sunday morning. Besides the usual stock of second-hand books, clothing, records and bric-a-brac which you would expect to find at flea markets across the world, keep an eye out for Russian icons, or freshly pickled Spreewald gherkins.

And if you want to try out some authentic German leather shorts (Lederhosen), you´ll save a few Euros (and a lot of chafing) if you buy a pair which has already been broken in.

Enjoy strolling among the city’s best flea market stalls, and don’t miss to check our map of Berlin’s most acclaimed flea markets at the end of the article.

Flohmarkt am Mauerpark

Open every Sunday since 2004 and located on the left or Eastern edge of Prenzlauer Berg’s Mauerpark (literally: Wall Park, or Park Where the Wall Ran), the Mauerpark Flea Market (Flohmarkt am Mauerpark)  is populated not only by some younger hipsters, but also the more international, grunge-yuppies of the neighborhood. While a newcomer to the Berlin flea market scene, the Mauerpark Flea Market is becoming a quick favorite.

The loose grid stalls populate the western side of the park and offer a collection of new and vintage fashions, vinyl CD’s, GDR memorabilia and antiques, bicycles and other knick-knacks.

Like the Arkonaplatz Flea Market, the goods found at the Mauerpark Flea Market range from private household assortments to professional local designer stuff. Cruise down Oderbergerstrasse afterward for a good coffee or brunch.

Where: Bernauer Strasse 63-64, 13355 Berlin – Prenzlauer Berg (U2 Eberswalderstrasse)
When: Sunday 08:00 – 18:00

Berlin-Arkonaplatz-Flohmarkt

Check out the stands toward the back of the Arkonaplatz Flea Market: some nice 70s lamps and other lounge accessories.

Trödelmarkt Straße des 17. Juni

Straße-des-17-Juni-Flea-Market

One of Berlin’s biggest and most touristed flea markets. The Trödelmarkt Straße des 17. Juni showcases a bustling and fashionable flea market with a variety of stalls selling everything from fancy buttons and a variety of hand-crafted items to funky second-hand clothes, jewelry, and records.

Because of its more prominent location near the Zoo Station and the Technical University, the Straße des 17 Juni Flea Market tends to be a bit on the pricey side.

Where: Straße des 17 Juni, 10623 Berlin – Tiergarten (S-Bahn Tiergarten)
When: Saturday and Sunday: 11:00 – 17:00

Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz

Boghagener-Platz-Flea-Market

The Boghagener Platz Flea Market is a gem! Having come to life spontaneously sometime late in 1999, there are few professionals from the Berlin flea market scene here. Basically, the Boghagener Platz Flea Market is a conglomeration of locals selling the stuff they collect or don’t want.

The merchandise on sale here represent the changing face of Friedrichshain. Expect to find older folk peddling relics of communist suburbia alongside members of a younger generation with not-quite-hip-enough personal effects to dispose of.

Where: Boxhagener Platz, 10245 Berlin – Friedrichshain (U5 Frankfurter Tor; Tram 21)
When: Sunday 10:00 – 18:00

 

Heidestraße Flea Market (Discontinued)

Heidestraße-flea-market

The Heidestraße Flea Market is one of the smallest indoor flea markets in Berlin. It is located in an old railway storage. Even though it has relatively precise opening times, it is best to come early as most of the traders have packed up and gone home by mid-afternoon. The focus of the Heidestraße Flea Market is on antiques and collectibles: furniture, porcelain, books, records and model cars.

Where: Heidestr. 10, Berlin – Tiergarten (U6 Reinickendorfer Str.)
When: Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 – 18:00

 

Kreuzboerg Flowmarkt (formerly Moritzplatz Flohmarkt)

The Kreuzboerg Flowmarkt is one of the real local trash and treasure flea markets (no yuppies here) on the Berlin flea market scene. There is definitely more trash than treasure here, but prices are low and there are bargains to be made in this collection of “thrown-together stalls” full of 2nd hand clothing, books, records and attic junk.

Where: Prinzenstraße 35-38, 10969 Berlin (U8 Moritzplatz)
When: Every second Sunday of the month (April to October) 10:00 – 17:00
