The Flohmarkt auf der Bremer Bürgerweide is one of the largest and most prominent flea market of its kind in Germany. Many visitors from Bremen and the surrounding regions, have been meeting here every Sunday, for the past 20 years.
And whether you’re looking for antique or modern, useful or bizarre, there is a lot of everything at this flea market. The strategic location of the Bürgerweide flea market (Bremen Central Station), right in the heart of the Hanseatic city, makes it easy to reach, particularly for the foreign flea market enthusiast.
Depending on weather conditions, the organizers decide whether the flea market will be held under the open sky of the Bürgerheide (shinny days) or in the covered space of the Hansa Carré (rain and snow).
This flexible approach has paid off: on peak days, up to 600 flea market vendors and more than 20,000 visitors flock at the Bürgerweide flea market.
It is so popular that even merchants from the neighboring regions of the Ruhr and Schleswig-Holstein, and even from the Netherland, are not afraid to drive the whole way to Bremen.
The appeal and flair of the Bürgerweide flea market mainly comes from the fact that this flea market provides a successful mix of private and professional merchants, who showcase long-forgotten family treasures uncovered from the dusty attics and basement of old family estates.
One particularly great thing about the Bürgerweide flea market, is that the organizers always make sure that no industrial products, large electrical household appliances or miscellaneous car accessories affect the atmosphere of the flea market. This is a pretty nice guarantee that almost only high quality merchandises are sold here.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
When I’m not able to travel, I check out a variety of online sources overseas and over the years have developed relationships with certain vendors who’ll let me save up my purchases until I have enough to fill a big box.
