Since 1992, the Antique and Buchmarkt at Bodemuseum has been wowing enthusiasts every weekend to this area of Berlin-Mitte located along the Spree river. With the impressive backdrop of the World Heritage Site of The Berlin Museum Island, this is the place to be for anyone with the slightest interest in history. It is always a special affair when historical items for sale at an antique market find themselves in such a landscape, and it is easy to see why this market is a favorite among locals and tourists alike.

Though there can often be a special emphasis on books at the Antique and Buchmarkt at Bodemuseum, there are plenty of other items for sale here to keep visitors interested and browsing. As with many markets, shoppers may find they have to do a fair bit of rummaging to discern the quality antiques from the curios, and collectors will not be disappointed by the wares on offer. Having items in your hands, to literally get a feel for them, is one of the joys of antiquing, and vendors here love to tell the stories behind their goods.

More modest in size than Berlin’s popular Flohmarkt am Mauerpark or Trödelmarkt Arkonaplatz, the Antique and Buchmarkt at Bodemuseum offers nonetheless a wide range of items for sale. Visitors will find porcelain goods, historical glassware, old coins, silverware, lots and lots of books, vinyl records, paintings and other art work, household items, small furniture items and nostalgic store signs. The market can also be a nice place to scout for old photos, stamps or post cards.

As well as the old and antique items, the Antique and Buchmarkt at Bodemuseum is also a place to admire some local handcrafts, with a few stalls dedicated to such. The stall holders are happy to engage about their crafts, and bargaining is also possible throughout the market. It is a lovely place to stroll around and spend some time, and it is easy to see why many locals are regular visitors here.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
