Berlin Flea Markets Tour

Available Saturday and Sunday

With more flea markets than any other city in Europe, shopping in Berlin is The Antiques Diva’s® & Co’s dream come true.  Add to a plethora of markets and antique shops, the fact that Berlin offers the lowest cost of living in Western Europe and you’ll discover that in Berlin bargains abound.  And where low-cost of living exists, inevitably artists follow, making Berlin Europe’s art capital and adding a vibrance and avant garde attitude to this reunited city.   One mustn’t forget that the Berlin you see today was in the not-so-distant past two cities and this new city is enormous, spread over an area equal to the entire size of Rhode Island or 10 times the size of Paris proper.  Needless to say, navigating the city, knowing where to go, and maximizing your transition time is of upmost priority on Antiques Diva® & Co Tours.  On this Antiques Diva® & Co Tour we’ll take you from East to West, evaluating your flea market needs on the spot, picking and choosing which flea market will best suit your shopping desires.  Whether we’re in West Berlin shopping in Schöneberg or  Charlottenburg or going East to Mitte, P-berg, Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg, on our tours we personalize your experience to take your tastes into consideration.  Last but not least, one mustn’t forget Berlin’s pièce de résistance, the Berliner Trödelmarkt on the famous Straße des 17. Juni.  This flea market has the best selection – not only in Berlin, but all of Germany!
