Münchner Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese

The largest and most famous of all flea markets in Munich that brings together 2,000 merchants and more than 80,000 visitors from all over Europe

The largest and most famous of all flea markets in Munich is without a doubt the flea market at the Theresienwiese. Always held once a year on the first Saturday of Munich’s Spring Festival (in April), the Münchner Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese brings together around 2,000 merchants and more than 80,000 visitors from all over Europe, for one festive day of haggling.

The Münchner Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese offers a unique opportunity for flea market enthusiasts to find great second-hand goods at a very low price: vintage clothe, paintings, vintage and design furniture, pictures, sculptures, militaria, home appliances, electronic, antiques, genuine accessories and clothes from brands like Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce Gabana, etc. are at the reach of any budget!

The trick to make the most of your day at this giant flea market and to snap up the best merchandises available before anyone, is to show up really early (around 4:00 a.m.) equipped with the basic must-have flea market raider gear: a flashlight, good walking shoes, a comfortable outfit, pockets full of coins and small (but enough) banknotes, as well as a strong dose of motivation and determination.

Flea market veterans also recommend to show up the day before the official opening of the flea market. In fact, most professional stalls are already set-up and most vendors are starting to sell their merchandises on Friday afternoon-evening. If you’re serious about flea market shopping, you can manage to spend up to five hours searching for antiques and design furniture with almost no competitors. And by nightfall, you might very well be able to pack and drive back home with all your finds, without having to bother attending the official flea market day, and its crowd of people.

As long as you have an idea of what you’re buying, or at least experience that weird feeling inside you that you’re about to take home something “huge”, then you’re a winner. So get ready for you’re next big flea market; the Münchner Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese may really turn into the chance of your life.

  1. Der Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese ist gigantisch und man schafft es eigentlich gar nicht jeden Stand zu besuchen. Ich gehe jedes Jahr gerne hierher zum Schlendern und natürlich auch zum Schnäppchen jagen. Verrücktes Zeug kann man hier ergattern. Außerdem mag ich einfach die Stimmung auf diesem Flohmarkt; man merkt, dass Frühling wird – die Leute sind super gut gelaunt und entspannt. Da er nur einmal im Jahr statt findet, ist er was ganz Besonderes, für alle, die hier her kommen.

  2. Dieser Flohmarkt lockt mich jedes Jahr wieder an! Leider findet er nur 1x jährlich statt, aber das macht ihn vielleicht auch so besonders. Der Flohmarkt erstreckt sich über die Theresienwiese und ist einfach riesen groß! Man kann einen kompletten Tag damit verbringen von Stand zu Stand zu ziehen… Man findet hier wirklich ausgefallene Sachen und echte Schnäppchen… Gerade für Liebhaber für Retro Design (wie mich) ist es hier ein echtes Paradies!

    Mein persönlicher Tip: Wartet bis kurz vor Ende und geht dann nochmal über den Flohmarkt, denn jetzt kann man natürlich die Preise enorm drücken

  3. Holy hipster paradise! This is by far the biggest and most popular flea market I’ve ever seen. The bad news: everyone and their mother shows up, so you gotta get there early if you don’t want to go postal on an innocent bunch of Hausfrauen. We showed up around 9am and within 30 minutes the place was at near-Oktoberfest capacity.

    The good news: this isn’t like most flea markets I’ve been to; there’s actually some cool shit to snag. Big ups on all the antiquey-retro re-sellers (hence the hipsters coming out in droves). And with so many vendors, you’re guaranteed that that one special thing you’re looking for is out there — now tracking it down and getting to it before everyone else is the hard part.

"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."
