We don’t know about you, but whenever we go somewhere we want to take a piece of it away. By that, we mean an object, something we’ve picked up that’ll help us remember our stay. And the best place to do that? A flea market – of which Berlin offers plenty. In fact, Berliners are incredibly well catered for when it comes to markets of all types. And come the weekend, each and every one is packed.
The German capital’s world-class museums and cultural attractions may well top most bucket lists, but for a real sense of the place, you’ve got to get outside and start browsing one of the very best markets in Berlin (and like we say, they’re legion). From Bite Club’s monthly food market bringing together the city’s buzziest restaurants to the second-hand spoils on offer at the bohemian Boxhagener Platz, they’re all colourful, vibrant and eclectic affairs. And whether you’re after discarded designer clothes or high-quality homeware, these must-visit markets will please travellers on all budgets – we’re sure of it. So grab your totes and shopping lists, and track down your ultimate piece of the city. You’ll no doubt come away with three.
