Shopping in Friedrichshain
Boxhagener Platz Flea Market:
Located within the lively student quarter of Friedrichshain, this flea market descends on the neighbourhood every Sunday. If you happen to be staying in the Friedrichshain area during your time in Berlin, this flea market is the perfect place to browse on an idle weekend, or to pick up your latest hidden gem for a bargain. Selling books, clothing, furniture and much more – there is something for everybody at the market. With plenty of restaurants and cafés nearby, it’s easy to grab a bite to eat after looking around.
Friedrichshain values uniqueness over everything else, and so visitors to the neighbourhood can expect plenty of independent stores selling bespoke pieces. Sometimes Coloured is one of the best vintage shopping areas in Friedrichshain, supplying second-hand finds for men and women.
