LomoTour Berlin: Berlin's Fleamarkets

In other cities, you never know what to do on Sundays. In Berlin there is the Mauerpark, the Boxi, and the Arkonaplatz. There’s always something going on here that’s worth checking out.

1. Mauerpark
At the Mauerpark, a vast number of people from every corner of the globe are bustling away either selling jewelry from Peru, haircuts from Hanoi, stolen bikes from Berlin or simply allowing themselves to get whipped up in the constant flow of people.
Location: Bernauer Straße 63-64, 13355 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Opening times: Every Sunday from 10-17h

2. Nowkoelln Flowmarkt
Secondhand treasures, fashion and art, as well as corn cobs, lentil soup and live music from diverse bands (that usually turn up with curious musical instruments and sporting long beards) are the order of the day at this market. There are no well-established stall owners here, instead, the market is run by young freelancers and art students that like to trade their closets for cash!
Location: Maybachufer/Friedelstraße, 12047 Berlin-Neukölln
Opening times: Irregularly on Sundays
More information: www.nowkoelln.de

3. Flohmarkt at Arkonaplatz
This one is different from Mauerpark or the Boxi. At Arkonaplatz, the market has less in the way of junk and better quality wares instead. Fancy furniture, designer glasses from the 60s or mountain shoes from Kazakhstan. Perfect place to come for breakfast: try the fruit muesli at Café Weltempfänger on the corner.
Location: Arkonaplatz, 10115 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Opening times: Every Sunday from 10-16h

4. Flohmarkt at Boxhagener Platz.
Just like at Mauerpark, going to this flea market isn’t just about buying stuff. The cry, “Let’s go to the Boxi!” can be translated as meaning something like this; let’s check out Friedrichshain, stroll around a bit, look at the junk and grab some coffee? Particularly worth checking out are the stands with first editions of beautiful books, rare vinyl, and design furniture from the 60s and 70s.
Location: Boxhagener Platz, 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain
Opening times: Every Sunday from 10:00-17:00

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
