Since 1975, the historic building that used to house one of the city’s bank, has been re-purposed to become home to Göteborg’s largest permanent antique and collectors’ market, Antikhallarna. The construction of this building was completed in 1905, although some major renovation works took place in 2012 in order to transform the building as it is today. It is the perfect location for such a major antiquing hub, and is increasingly popular in the world of vintage and collectable goods.
The 19th century building of Antikhallarna is impressive all of itself. It certainly stands out from its surroundings, and begs shoppers to come in and take a closer look at all it has to offer. Once inside, it continues to impress with the selection of antique and vintage items for sale. The store owners are clearly passionate about antiquing in their own right, and the items in Antikhallarna are obviously curated with care.
