Flea market in Berlin

It’s doesn’t matter whether you are in need of a cheap bike or after the cool vintage desktop lamp, the great diversity of flea markets Berlin can offer make it easy to find the great bargain on furniture, vinyle, cuttleries, oddities and more.

There is a great Berlin flea market culture going on throughout the city and many Flohmärkte or Trodelmärkte can be found in the different Bezirke. It is also a perfect opportunity for a nice stroll on the week-end.

Here is a almost complete list on a map with descriptions underneath :

Flohmarkt am Mauerpark

flea market Berlin

Flea market in Mauerpark

The most famous of all, although not the best nor the oldest one. It is also one of the most international ones. However, the always great atmosphere thanks to the famous Karaoke and the food stands are also worth a look.
It can be hard to book a spot, so you if you have a few things to get rid of, make sure to book early. (Fee is 7-30€)

Every Sunday 8am-6pm
Closed during winter time

Mauerpark, Bernauer Straße 63-64,  U Eberswalder Straße,

Hallenflohmarkt in der Arena

My personal favorite flee market in Berlin. It is a joyful mess and a well kept secret that you can find in the Arena.  A ton of vintage radios, lamps, carpets and other items  can be found there, with stand owners ready to bargain down the price a little bit. It is one of the few covered flee markets in Berlin, which makes it a perfect destination for rainy days. A fair amount of furniture and rarities can also be found there. Stand available from 10€.

Every Sunday and Saturday from 10am til 4pm

Arena, Eichenstraße 4,  S Treptower Park or U Schlesisches Tor

flea market Berlin

Flea market on Straße des 17. Juni

The so-called “Original Berlin flee market” takes place around the Tiergarten S-Bahn station. It’s been taking place every week-end since 1973. This apparently the oldest flea market in Berlin. The location around the Charlottenburger Tor makes it a prime location for artists and other professional antiques dealers to show off their unique pieces. Although there is a good amount of usual stuff like old toys, LPs and affordable jewelry, it is however not so much the place to find a good deal. Rent a stand for around 40€.

Every Saturday and Sunday – 10am-5pm

Straße 17. Juni,  S Tiergarten

Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz

Flohmarkt am Rathaus Schöneberg

Every week-end, the flea market takes over the square in front the Schöneberg city hall. If you are looking for cutleries, small furniture and accessories, that’s the right place.

It’S possible to rent a stand for about 35€. It is recommended to come a bit later to find the real bargains in typical “1€ for everything” fashion.

    I know that Berlin has a great flea market culture. But, some of those fleamarkets are quite commercial (Selling only expensive artsy stuff, or new products not second hand stuff). I am looking for the real fleamarket experience with roaming around in little stales, going through hundreds of little things, bargaining over the price, also finding small items for just a couple of Euros and so on… Thank you so much for describing some of those flea-market. Which one would be the best for “the real-second-hand-flearmarket-experience” in your oppinion. Best would be around Neukölln (How is the fleamarket at Marheinekeplatz / Skalitzer Straße / Prinzessinengärten / Prinzenstraße /Boxhagener Platz?) I would be so happy to get an answer :). Cheers

      Yes i know what you mean, some of them have gone the expensive vintage route, but even at Mauerpark or Boxhagener Platz, you can still try to find cool items and bargain. Skalitzerstr. is also not so high-end (last time i went at least). I’ve recently been at the Antik & Trödelmarkt on Richardstr. in Neukölln, you should maybe have a look there. 🙂

    Wow !! Amazing article ! Thank you so much , this helped me out a lot.

    Many thanks for your sharing! This is really useful.
    I just wonder if registration/fee is needed if I just wanna sell a few small things on a cover on the floor around the market (not with a table or booth). I saw people selling things on the staircases around Mauerpark last Sunday and I just wonder if a fee is required.
    Thanks in advance for your advice!

      In my opinion, you are not supposed to do that but maybe it is tolerated by people organizing the flee market in that part of Berlin. The rule is probably that you have to book a spot. Why don’t you send them an email to ask and let us all know ? I’m curious myself.

    Great article about fleas in Berlin! There are actually a few of them in this listing, I was not familiar with… so that’s a pretty cool find 🙂
    Funny enough, a few weeks ago we published an article about the 20 Best Flea Markets in Germany. It was quite a challenge to pick the 20 most prominent venues, but in the end, we made it! And Berlin is OF COURSE well represented: Flea markets insiders

    Tschüss!
