flea market Copenhagen

Flea market season has begun in Copenhagen! (2019 update)

Flea markets thrive during spring and summer, and Copenhagen is surely no exception to this phenomenon. There are several exciting outdoor flea markets in Copenhagen that tempt flea market enthusiasts with cheap second-hand goods, bric-a-brac and unique antiques. Besides the rather high-end Thorvaldsen Antique Market in the city center, there is a wide variety of more affordable flea markets in town that are full of treasures. Old jewelry, vintage Danish furniture, Mid Century Modern decor items, crockery, vintage Copenhagen porcelain sculptures, vinyl records, unique antiques, and cheap clothes can all be found at Copenhagen’s flea markets. And if you are not traveling on a budget, antique shops in the cozy and vibrant streets of Ravnsborggade are another great option.

Tip: As always, it is generally advised to arrive early to flea markets in Denmark if you want to be sure to make a good deal. Flea markets in Copenhagen are popular and often crowded!

Enjoy our list of Copenhagen’s best flea markets and antiques markets:

If the weekly markets in Copenhagen do not sound exciting enough for you, it is worth keeping your eyes peeled for the Ravnsborggade Flea Market in Norrebro. This flea market is held only four times a year – once per season in the Ravnsborggade neighborhood of Copenhagen.

In fact, the open air market, which is located on the streets of Ravnsborggade and Sankt Hans Gade, is much more than a simple flea market. Both streets also host an exciting variety of antique shops, designer boutiques and galleries. In fact, Ravnsborggade offers a wonderful blend of antique shops and is one of the best shopping streets in Copenhagen.

With the trading in full swing, all these venues bring their business to the streets and transform the market into a real community event. The atmosphere at Ravnsborggade flea market is unique, well worthy of being high on your list of Copenhagen flea markets to visit.

    • Hi Beryl! All flea markets in this listing have been updated to reflect the opening dates for 2017. A couple of them are open in early April 2017. However, double check Nørrebrogade Flea Market as it may not be regularly held. Happy flea market shopping in Copenhagen!

  1. Anne Hansen

    Hi Ashley, Thank you for your article and for putting focus on Copenhagen!
    However, I am pretty sure the TAP1 Carlsberg flee market has closed.. Also, I think Remisen is a winter market and closes in April.
    Aside from your recommendations and as a Copenhagen resident I can also draw attention to Frederiksberg Loppemarked (loppemarked just means flea market). It’s open Saturdays, officially from 9am – 3pm (but I’m usually there before 8). Runs from April 1-October 17 2017 – behind Frederiksberg town hall, very close to Copenhagen city center. A mix of private and professionals – good for smaller items and clothes, not furniture. Another good open air market is Gentofte Loppemarked about 15 minutes on train from Copenhagen – go to Charlottenlund station – it’s behind the station and quite big. Almost only private vendors from this relatively affluent area, so sometimes quality bargains:) Same type of smaller items/ clothes as Frederiksberg market. Open 8-14 on Sundays, I’m not sure for how long, but it’s a summer market like Frederiksberg.

    • Hi Anne, thanks for keeping us up to date and for your valuable feedback! I updated the article to reflect the changes affecting Carlsberg Loppemarkedet (Discontinued). I also did a bit of research regarding Frederiksberg Loppemarked, and it’s totally the kind of venue we’d love to have featured on fleamarketinsiders.com and fleamapket.com! However, most resources online are note in English, and my knowledge of Danish is rather limited ;) Would you know someone at Frederiksberg Loppemarked who would be kind enough to send us a 200-250 words description of the flea market (in a rather neutral and descriptive tone, not self promotional), so we could update our article, and add it to our Copenhagen listings on https://www.fleamapket.com/listing-region/europe/denmark/ ?

    Hi Ashley, thank you for all your recommendations.
    Last weekend I went to a vinyl fair in an old Church in Vesterbro that works as a Community Centre, and I found it very cool. Really great albums and good prices. They told me it was going to be another one in November but they weren’t sure about the dates. I live in London, so I would like to plan another trip to Copenhagen that weekend and bring a bigger suitcase with me ;) Do you know anything about when it’s going to be? Many thanks!

    • Hi Ana, that’s lovely to hear you had a great time in Copenhagen, and that some of our recommendations were useful! Do you remember the name of the organizers of this church flea market in Vesterbro? I searched, but couldn’t find anything relating to them. Nonetheless, I found a list of 6 additional flea markets which will be taking place in November:http://markedskalenderen.dk/marked/kategori/loppemarked
      If you get back to me with a name, I’ll try and look for more information (thanks to my very basic understanding of Danish :D )

    Hello Ashley and Ana,

    I would love to go to Denmark but it would in 2018. I really have no idea if i can find antiques shops where i can find corals, ambers and asian antiques such as Tibetan, Chinese or mongol. Please advise me because I really have no any knowledge of Denmark.

    Thank you so much for both of you
    Norbu
