1. Mauerpark flea market

Located within walking distance from the EastSeven Berlin Hostel, this weekly fleamarket is one of the most popular ones in town. Every Sunday locals and tourist come here to look for great old stuff from furniture to clothing. But also you can find brand new things here.  From hand made jewelry out of old silver spoons to hip clothes. You can find anything here, it is so big!!!

Besides that it is the best place to go for a snack! There are stands selling sweets, Turkish dishes, rice, sandwiches, and bratwurst. You name it, they got it!

But that ́s not all! There is live music as well! A lot of musicians meet in the park next to the market to perform to an unique audience! Also the famous bearpit karaoke takes places at the Mauerpark fleamarket!

2. Nowkoelln flea market

This market takes place every first & third Sunday, at the Maybachufer! Located in vibrant Kreuzkölln, alongside the canal, this fleamarket has something romantic in it.

What can you find here? Next to first class second hand and original handmade products you will find art and live music here. Strawl alongside the canal, buy some souvenirs and gifts and enjoy the beautiful city scenery. What more can you ask for?!

 

3. Bergmannstrasse flea market

Another great fleamarket located in Kreuzberg, is the one at the Bergmannstraße.

The market is surrounded by a lot of nice cafés and restaurants. So it ́s perfect to combine your visit to this market with having lunch or dinner!

4. Boxhagener Platz flea market

This nice fleamarket has a really alternative flair!  What to expect? A lot of hand-made T-shirts, jewelery, art, books, a little furniture, a lot of cool people….Check it out!

This small market, with around 100-150 stands, is on every Sunday. The fun starts at 10am and goes till approxiametely 6pm.

The area around Boxhagener platz is also really good for finding nice small restaurants and bars.

5. Tiergarten antique market

As the name already explains,  it is not really a flea market but here you can find antique stuff too!

If you have a little bit more to spend, and if you are looking for something really special, go here! Afterwards you can stroll through the big city park Tiergarten, definitely worth while visiting! Another idea is to combine the visit to the flea market with a visit to the zoo.

 

Have fun exploring Berlin and its wonderful flea markets!
