The Remains of Two Civilizations. Flea Markets of Berlin

Berlin, Germany

7 places

Tanya Stella

Berlin is famous for its flea markets and second hand stores. There, you can find ultra trendy clothes and accessories, as well as something vintage for your home. You can also come across some old Soviet stuff.

Arkonaplatz Market

The nicest market ever featuring vintage items, such as vinyl records, designer boots, hats, the 1950s tables, engravings, etc. If you want to get hold of something truly unique, do come early. Still it’s all right just to stroll between the rows and look about or to sit in one of the cafés. The market is open on Sundays, 10 a.m. – 16 p.m.

Marheineke Markthalle

This food market is open daily except for Sunday. Plenty of stalls feature national produce from Greece, Italy, Thailand, India, France, etc. There is a vast selection of food for vegetarians, tea and coffee. All products sold are of excellent quality and reasonably priced. As a rule, you can taste everything before you buy it.

Mauerpark Flea Market

Open in Mauerpark on Sundays, this huge flea market attracts a lot of tourists. The amount of stuff on the counters simply blinds you. I recommend coming here by the end of the day – it is easier to haggle. I love this market for its lively and joyful atmosphere, laid-back vibe and delicious fast food. You can also drop in at a café in Kastanienallee street on your way back from the flea market.

RAW flea market

For me a tour around RAW flea market is a pleasant Sunday experience. It is a place for individual sellers, and in fact anyone can become one simply by renting a trading place. People here are getting rid of unnecessary things. On the market, you'll find lots of hand-made stuff. Price negotiation is appropriate and even encouraged.
RAW market is more of a place for social growth, than a bazaar in the truest sense of the word. Here you can also go to a concert and taste delicious sausages and waffles at €2 per serving.


A small market in an unusual place, Trodelmarkt occupies a spot surrounded by industrial ruins. John Kennedy made his famous speech "Ich bin ein Berliner" opposite the place at the Rathaus Schöneberg in 1963. Today the place is noisy, all sorts of kits and bits are sold, while people drink beer. I recommend you to drop in at the Austrian café at the end of the market to taste the best strudels in the city.
Trodel Markt is open on weekends from 8 a.m. to 17 p.m.

Turkish Market

This one is my fav food market. Everything is fresh and cheap. The market is situated by the canal, it is lively and joyful. You can buy some delicious hummus and other Eastern snacks, fruit and cheese, and head to a picnic. Some stall holders already know me and give me a sweet smile as we meet.

Flea Market at Boxhagener Platz

Boxhagener Platz is a square in Friedrichshain district, a happening neighborhood and a popular place to rent a flat in Berlin. At weekends, a flea market takes place here - come and can gaze at one of the most amazing things you may ever see.
