Furniture Flohmarkt- do you know a good one?

8 posts in this topic

Hi friends,

 

I've just moved to Berlin and am trying to decorate (with as little IKEA as possible). Other than Mauerpark (which I find overpriced and CRAZY-crowded), are there any other good fleamarkets with furniture/home goods to hit up? Or vintage funiture shops in general? Please also give time/location...thanks a lot for your help! Frohes Neues Jahr!

Hiya,

 

Here is a list of flea markets you may want to check out:

 

Flea Market Arkonaplatz

A haven for fans of Sixties and Seventies items in Berlin's Mitte district. Sells furniture.

Sundays only, 10am - 5pm.

 

 

Hallentrödelmarkt Treptow (indoor flea market)

Located in a vast former bus depot not far from the former Berlin Wall near Kreuzberg, this is the place to go for everything and anything including furniture. Junk is the order of the day, though there are plenty of bargains if you look hard enough.

Eichenstrasse 4, 12435 Berlin; Sat. / Sun. 10am - 5pm.

 

Trödelmarkt am Rathaus Schöneberg

Held in front of Rathaus Schöneberg, this flea market has more of a local character, where Berliners come to buy and sell their bric-a-brac and furniture.

Sat. / Sun. 8am - 4pm.

 

Straße des 17. Juni (Flea market)

Berlin's best-known and classiest outdoor market. There's less thrift-sale junk and more antiques and handicrafts on offer, including furniture, jewelry, pictures and clothes. For second hand stuff, look for books and records as well as what could be called "antique junk".

Sat. / Sun. 10am - 5pm.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Hey everyone!

This post is super old but I'll use it to ask for more recent info about Flohmarkt in Berlin.

How is the situation now with COVID? Are they working anyway? What happened to the one in Mauerpark? 

Thanks :)

I don't know any that have reopened on a regular basis. Between the first and second waves they started up again with regulated entry - which actually made it easier to browse because the crowds were much thinner. I'm really hoping they open up again soon - it's where I used to buy my hand-tools.

 

As far as furniture is concerned, Leopoldplatz usually has/had a good selection. Mauerpark too, although the haggling can be tiresome. Arkonaplatz is a bit more up-market, though there's great vintage/ex-DDR stuff there.

 

An interesting one to check out - which doesn't get a lot of coverage - is the HansaMarkt Trödelmarkt in Berlin-Weissensee. It's got a carpark section, as well as a more established set of stalls. The sellers are mostly east-side - there's not so many of the Turkish 'deceased estate' dealers. If it's the latter you're after though, you can't beat Schöneberg town hall.

 

Damn, I wish it would all start up again...

Forgot to mention this odd one:

https://www.google.de/maps/place/Tr%C3%B6delmarkt/@52.5816741,13.3644991,18.36z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x47a853cd44f37729:0xb6ed87c8df5289f4!8m2!3d52.58179!4d13.36538

 

Next to SBahn Wilhelmsruh. I've got no idea what it's like, but when I cycled past last year it was open - in spite of Coivd restrictions - and looked like it dealt with furniture.

 

No guarantees though. I'm aiming to visit properly once the weather improves.

I have found a lot of furniture in good condition on Sperrmuell (lovely glass table, mirrors, chairs, shelves). In my town it is Sperrmuelltag every two months, elsewhere it is organised differently.
