Flea Market @Mauerpark – always on Sundays

Location

Right next to the MauerPark! If you get to Bernauer Street and stand in front of the park, you can find the flea market on the left. Only separated by a fence, there is a path parallel to the park. So this flea market is basically only one, but very long corridor. You can use both the Bernauer Street as well as the park itself to enter the flea market.

The Kick-off

Everytime there are many beautiful booths, but it`s still not overcrowded. Not yet. The action starts relatively late. The set-up won`t happen before 8 o`clock, usually iniciated by the professional jewelry and tech bargain hunters, but in general it only gets truly filled at 11 a.m. (For sellers obviously something silly). But for me very appealing is: Those who exhibit here are primarily private people, and not professionals! They have a lot of fun doing this!

Stuff & finish

Whether books, CD’s, lights or clothes, mainly cheap things can be expected. And in the end, many things are given away – because private people dislike to fill up their cellar again. The total sellout is around 5/6 p.m., because they cannot get back with their cars close to the stands before that time.

Extras

Something pleasant: there’s a cafe on the premises, das “Schönwetter” (the nice weather), where you can chill in the shade in lawn chairs, listen to DJ vibes and have some original sausages, if you like. You can also use the park next door to recover the strains of seeking. There always play a few small artists surprinsingly real good music, which gives the whole thing a pretty relaxing athmosphere.

The Berlin Wall – At Mauerpark

The Mauerpark in general

The Mauerpark is a park in Berlin. His name goes back to 1961 when the Berlin Wall was built, which was the border between the former Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding. Today, it is the border between the districts of Prenzlauer Berg (Pankow) and Gesundbrunnen (district centre). The areas around the Mauerpark are westbound the Brunnenviertel belonging to Gesundbrunnen, and in the east the Gleimviertel belonging to Prenzlauer Berg.

Worth a visit

Highly recommended is the wall close to the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark. Here you can discover really nice artwork such as the Rolling Stones Theme – I liked that pretty much. if you`re interested in spraying, you will find many young sprayers over here – hobby artists and pros.
