Top ways to experience Mauerpark Flea Market and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

You can see old products full of their stories here, and you can also meet interesting performers and various foods. The experience of finding something special in a pile of stuff was very interesting. It's full of very old and new products. I was able to get handmade cards and small ornaments here, and these are rare items I haven't seen anywhere else. You can also buy dishes at reasonable prices. If you look around here slowly, it takes about 2 hours. After shopping, you can see dynamic people painting on the wall and it's even more enjoyable. Within a five-minute distance, there is Bonanza Coffee, where you can stop by and wrap up the day happily. If you visit Berlin on the weekend, I recommend you go to Mauerpark.

Good market, alot of 'Etsy' type things being sold as well as second hand stalls, souvenirs etc. A bit muddy under foot in places if has been raining so wear appropriate footwear. Plenty of food and drink to choose from too. Enjoyable Sunday morning

Best part were the food trucks - Thai, Argentinian, Japanese, French, wurst, etc. It all looked very good and there were long lines at the popular ones. Some interesting merchandise vendors but it looked like a few decided to close due to early rains. Most of the used/antiqu-ish items required one to dig through boxes.

Err this isn’t really a ‘flea market’ - it’s mostly market stalls and a few sellers selling house clearance items. Overall I’d say it’s pretty low end, hippy, trashy. The house clearance sellers are hustler types - I saw a couple of ok things but their selling tactics put us off. The market stalls are crystals, African bags, studenty t-shirts etc.
It wasn’t at all what we’d hoped for, in fact quite depressing. Really don’t recommend if you’re into proper flea markets.

This is one of the most well known flea markets in Berlin. We visited it last Sunday and although it was very crowded, it was really fun to visit. The market is a good combination of second hand, new and handcrafted pieces. It's fun to stroll, there are enough stands to keep you busy for 1-2 hours and you just might find a nice souvenir to take back home.

The market is located between the Eberswalder Strasse and Schwedster Strasse. The closest metro stations are Eberswalder Strasse (U2) or Bernauer Strasse (U8). You can easily combine the market with a visit to the Gedenkstaette Berliner Mauer, which is within walking distance.

Took in the market en-route to the Berlin Wall attraction. Great market with a better than expected versatility of stalls. I usually get bored in markets with repetitive stalls after about 15 minutes, but this one kept me interested for about an hour and a half. Packed, difficult to move but great atmosphere and some great stalls. You can also buy street food here and a beer. This was one hot day so a beer and a water went down well before we made our way onto the Berlin Wall exhibit. Great market, highly recommend a visit but remember only on a Sunday!

This was the highlight of our visit to Berlin. The market is easy to get to by public transport and we combined it with a visit to the Memorial to the Berlin Wall and the Chapel of Reconciliation. The market has a great atmosphere, friendly vendors with a large variety of goods, and plenty of reasonably priced food and drink outlets. After perusing the markets, you can go up to the music amphitheatre for some entertainment or check out the street art on the stadium wall at the top of the embankment. This is a very active display (we saw several artists at work) which in my view is artistically better than the East Side Gallery (but not as famous for political statements). There are several beer gardens nearby for dinner or drinks after your visit (we went to Prater Garten, which was fine).

I have never seen such a lot of absolute trash, garbage and rubbish. It should all be burnt immediately. I saw very few people buying anything. It was all piled up in boxes and I didn’t even want to touch it as most of it was filthy, broken or missing parts. There were a few stalls selling new things, and some food stalls. Some of it I wouldn’t want to eat as the whole thing is based in a dusty, grotty car park and the food appeared to be prepared on the floor. The kids loved it for some reason. I found absolutely nothing of interest or value here. The only thing which made my day was a guy doing close up photos of peoples irises. For €20 I am awaiting a JPEG to come by email. I hope it was genuine.

Heard good things but did five markets that Sunday and three of them were better. Because this one is well know and had good reviews it was just too overcrowded and compared to others overpriced. Honestly, the smaller ones are better and much more 'real'. This is a tourist trap.
If you do go there, also go to the one outside the Tiergarten S-Barn station, a better mix of tourists and locals or better still, the one by Fehrberliner Platz U-Barn station, more locals and very few tourists.
