The best Flea Markets available now in Berlin

Flea Market at Mauerpark

Flea market at Mauerpark is perhaps the most loved among Berliners and tourists, the atmosphere is always cheerful and relaxed despite the crowd that populates it and that often makes difficult to observe what the stalls offer, especially in the afternoon when to wander around the stalls it becomes more a being carried by the flow of the bodies of others.

What makes this market famous is also the life that animates the park where it takes place, in fact the Mauerpark on Sundays is frequented by families, athletes, people who walk the dog, groups of friends who relax on the hill or on the lawn drinking a beer or a Club-Mate, but who animates it the most are the artists who perform shows in the famous Karaoke Amphitheater, where everyone can participate and put in place their own performance.
