Located in the heart of the vibrant student quarter around Simon-Dach-Strasse in Friedrichshain, the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz is a wonderful place to stroll and rummage around.

Brought to life  some time in the late 1990s, this flea market still gathers once a week, many professionals from the Berlin flea market scene. While the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz is big enough to offer good variety and selection, it is smaller and less overwhelming than other Berlin flea markets, like Flohmarkt am Mauerpark or Trödelmarkt Straße des 17. Juni. It is also infinitely less crowded and nestled into a nice, shady square.

Flea market enthusiasts, antique collectors and tourists alike can find everything at the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz, from books and furniture to household equipment, paintings, furniture, lamps and second-hand designer garments. The distinctive feature of the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz are its many books and record stalls. And with a bit of patience, one might discover real treasures!

It is worth mentioning that a large number of the stalls featured at the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz are professionally ran, which means that shoppers are less likely to get a great bargain on certain items. All in all, the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz is a good place to go to browse or get a unique gift, but flea market shoppers shouldn’t count on great deals.

Last but not least, there are numerous restaurants and snacks in the immediate vicinity of the flea market, while the meadow in the square’s centre is a great place to chill out after shopping. In fact, a visit to the Flohmarkt am Boxhagener Platz can be nicely combined with a Sunday brunch in one of the surrounding cafes.

"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."
