Once a week, rain or shine, up to 30,000 visitors flock at the Mauerpark Flea Market. This flea market, which covers a total of 8 hectares (with up to 500 stalls split over 7,000 square meters), is located near the former Todesstreifen (Death Strip) at the border area between Wedding and Prenzlauer Berg. This is where its appropriate name “Mauerpark” comes from. The Mauerpark flea market is dominated by the colorful stalls of traders who bring the trash and junk they have been collecting over the week from dusty attics and dark basements. However, this does not mean that you can not discover one or more hidden gems, among the items offered by professional dealers. Because the Berlin Mauerpark Flea Market is open to both private Flea markets dealers (who want to get rid-off their old stuff) and professional trader with their elegant designer items, it has a pretty wide range of different goods, for all tastes.
