Antikmarkt Ostbahnhof

Hidden Berlin Instagram feed (5 September 2015)

One for the chilled out treasure hunters, AntikmarktOstbahnhof is a pirate’s cove of glittering odds and ends. You’ll find the usual flea market suspects here – clothes, furniture, books and knick knacks – but there’s definitely something extra pleasant about wandering around Ostbahnhof’s antique fair. It’s less hectic than some of Berlin’s more famous markets – so you’ll have room to breathe as you flick through boxes of original DDR-era postcards, or vintage costume jewellery. However, one stand-out feature is the market’s collection of vintage records and film posters. Film and music buffs alike can have a field day rifling through the classics. The market is a stone’s throw from Ostbahnhof station. Many of the station’s shops and food outlets are open on Sunday too: a rarity in Berlin. If the hustle, bustle and bruised elbows of Berlin’s busiest markets is your scene, Antikmarkt Ostbahnhof might feel a bit quiet. But for a leisurely day of trade and treasure, come and see what takes your fancy. #Ostbahnhof #BRLN #Market #HiddenBerlin #Antique #VisitBerlin #Vintage #Antimarkt #Music #FleaMarket #DDR #HiddenBerlinPlaces #Classic #Film #Summer #Hipster #City #Photography #Spree #Friedrichshain
