The Nowkoelln Flowmarkt on Maybachufer in Kreuzberg has become a very popular Sunday destinations to Berliners and tourists. A good mix of private sellers, food stands and commercial vintage vendors, the bi-weekly flea market offers quite the urban spectacle.
As far as shopping is concerned, you have to be there quite early to make good deals. Expect a lot of garbage when going through clothes, but I admit I’ve also found a couple of key pieces over the years. On a sunny day, prepare for an onslaught of people – the tight little alley on the canal can get horribly crowded. Nevertheless, still much better option (in my opinion) than Mauerpark and worth a try if you’re looking to have a nice afternoon.
