Sat & Sun market!

What makes this flea market stand out is the fact that there were musicians in the corners of the market. One was a hip hop freestyler and the other one an old lady playing a string instrument. The items sold at the flea market can be found at any other flea market all over Berlin

If you want to live deeply a Sunday in Berlin, visit a flea market. The one in Boxhagener Platz (Friedrichshain) is one of the most famous. Not huge, but with a warm atmosphere. You can find many original souvenirs coming directly from the GDR's time or handcrafters manufactures. Many bars, restaurants and cafeterias around the square offer rich brunches. Children... More

This is a small neighbourhood flea market in Friedrichshain around Boxhagener square. It starts much later than other flea markets, people start setting up around 10am and it's well visited by locals and not overrun by tourists yet which means you pay much lower prices than at the Mauerpark one and you get to mingle with locals. The playground and... More

Boxhagener markt is a great mix of fleamarketeers, artists and craftspeople. . Parking is virtually nil, so plan to take public transport. There is an s-Bahn line one block north and the SamariterStrasse U- Bahn line three blocks farther north on FrankfurterAllee. An early start is advisable in October as daylight ends early. We considered it a wonderful find and... More

We loved this market... great size and good range of second hand, antique and local, hand made crafts. Located in a great area of town too with loads of cafes and restaurants and bars so a lovely Sunday hang out.

Best to combine this with the much larger Mauerpark flea market on Sunday. Similar wares but much smaller but still well with the visit.

After visiting memorials and museums, this makes a nice break. I was hoping for more street musicians; there was only one the day we went. Some craft-type jewelry, books [even in English], and lots of East German soldier uniforms. Is there a demand for that? It was nice to walk around, checking out old-style phones and pop-up laser stationery, for... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
