The 7 best vintage flea markets in Berlin

by | Jun 12, 2024 | Uncategorized

There are lots of flea markets in Berlin. People everywhere want to sell their second-hand clothes and other items. And you can stock up on vintage items at such a flea market at a reasonable price. What’s more, it’s simply an experience to stroll along the stalls and discover real treasures. We at the EastSeven Hostel in Berlin have listed the 7 best vintage flea markets in the capital in this article. Find out where they are, when they take place and what makes them so special.

What makes flea markets so special

Above all, flea markets offer you the opportunity to buy used items very cheaply. Whether furniture, books, children’s toys, records or art: the wide range of items on offer at the markets has something for all interests. However, second-hand clothing is particularly popular at every flea market. Items of clothing that the previous owner no longer likes may put a smile on your face. There is also an incomparable atmosphere at a flea market. Every visitor goes to the stalls in search of a bargain. Haggling with the dealer for the last price is also exciting. Can you manage to pay a little less? Last but not least, flea markets make an important contribution to environmental protection. Instead of buying something new, for which resources were used, you can buy used items. This protects the environment. And now we’ll tell you which flea markets you shouldn’t miss on your next visit to Berlin.

Flea market at Boxhagener Platz

Boxhagener Platz is a park in the Friedrichshain district. Berliners affectionately refer to it as Boxi. While a weekly market is held on the square every Saturday, it is transformed into a popular flea market every Sunday. At times, the flea market was quite crowded, but it is now pleasant to stroll around again. You will find an exciting mix of different items on the stalls. Vintage fans in particular are sure to find what they are looking for here. And when you’re done dawdling, you can make yourself comfortable on the lawn on Boxhagener Platz and look at the treasures you’ve bought. There are also a few recommended cafés near the square.

Flea market at Schöneberg Town Hall

The flea market at Rathaus Schöneberg is held at a historic location. In June 1963, John F. Kennedy gave his famous speech “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner) at the site where a flea market is now held every Saturday and Sunday. All kinds of junk can be found at the market – from clothes to art. Even if you are looking for antiques, you should pay a visit to the flea market. However, you shouldn’t arrive too late. The traders start dismantling their stalls at 4 pm on the dot.

Flea market in Mauerpark

Mauerpark is located in the Prenzlauer Berg district – where the Berlin Wall ran until 1989. It stretches for around two kilometers and is very popular with residents and tourists alike. A flea market has been held on Bernauer Strasse every Sunday since 2004, which has played a part in the park’s popularity. There are more than 400 stalls at the market. Unlike other flea markets, however, they are not occupied by too many professional traders. Instead, private traders present items that they no longer need. As a result, you rarely find antiques, but rather the small but fine offerings of people from the neighborhood.

Nowkoelln Flowmarkt

The Nowkoelln Flowmarkt definitely has the most unusual name on our list of the best flea markets in Berlin. It is unmistakably located in the Neukölln district – more precisely, on the Maybachufer of the Landwehrkanal. The location by the water already has a certain appeal. What’s more, music can always be heard at the Flowmarkt. In addition, performance artists occasionally show what they can do and culinary specialties are on offer. The Flowmarkt is also a genuine art market in terms of what is on offer at the stalls. Many traders offer pieces that they have created themselves. The treasures include printed T-shirts, for example, as well as jewelry and porcelain. So if you like design, the Flowmarkt is right up your street. Just make sure you choose the right date for your visit to the flea market. The Nowkoelln Flowmarkt only takes place every second Sunday. So it’s best to check the website so that you don’t return to the EastSeven Hostel without having achieved anything.

RAW flea market

The abbreviation RAW stands for “Reichsbahnausbesserungswerk”. The site in Friedrichshain is now home to various clubs, bars and stores. Various exhibitions can also be seen in the buildings on the RAW site. Art is therefore not neglected at the flea market, which takes place every Sunday on the RAW site. The selection of junk is diverse: there are clothes, antiques, jewelry and much more. While strolling through the flea market, you are sure to find something you like and can then haggle over the price with the dealer. Visitors’ culinary well-being is also catered for. Various stalls offer street food from all over the world.

Arkonaplatz flea market

The flea market on Arkonaplatz in Mitte has been around since 1990. The square (which, incidentally, is not far from Mauerpark) has a certain historical significance anyway. The elementary school on Arkonaplatz is one of the oldest school buildings in Berlin. There is also a fountain on the square that was once operated by hand pump. The flea market, which is held every Sunday on Arkonaplatz, mainly offers clothes, books and records. However, some traders also offer furniture and other larger items. If you go to the flea market with children, you can reward them after their stroll with a visit to the beautiful playground, which is also located on Arkonaplatz.
