Bode Museum Flea Market

Slip into the Mitte district over the weekend to peruse some of Berlin’s coolest antiques, artwork and books. While prices may be a little higher than the other weekend markets on the list, things tend to be of higher quality here and stall owners are generally open to a good haggle. It’s a great choice for those looking for a unique souvenir to take home and it’s also one of the more picturesque markets, strung out along the length of the River Spree with the impressive Bode Museum in the background every weekend.

Open Saturdays – Sundays, 10am – 5pm.

Kunstmarkt Strasse des 17. Juni

As the oldest flea market in the city, this antiques and collectibles stalwart has remained a popular weekend destination for travellers and locals alike. Held in the Charlottenberg neighbourhood on the historical Strasse des. 17 Juni, it’s full of quirky odds and ends which will reward anybody with the patience to spend time mining the stalls for gold. Don’t forget to slip off to the arts and crafts market nearby for some fantastic handicrafts made by local artisans.

Open Saturdays – Sundays, 10am – 5pm.
