Flohschanze Flea Market

Vintage Market
08.00 - 16.00 St Pauli

They say the early bird gets the worm, well if you happen to be up at the crack of dawn in Hamburg on a Saturday morning you could just bag a bargain. The Flohschanze Flea Market is a great place to go if you are looking for some real local colour.

The building is the old cattle slaughter house in St Pauli and it is a huge place with a vibrant atmosphere. As you thread you way slowly through the crowds of shoppers you can see all sorts of glittery and tempting items on sale.

Probably most famous for its antiques, which invariably have come straight out of the attics of the city residents, you can also pick up things like jewellery, clothes and even second hand bicycles.

The Flohschanze Flea Market is one of the most popular in the city and this is because the stalls are full of genuine vintage items. The vendors are always willing to have a chat and they do usually speak English so if you are an expert haggler, get stuck in.

There are a few coffee shops and cafes dotted throughout the market so if the early start has you flagging a little you can refresh yourself and do a little people watching while you are at it.

Not far away is the Marktstrasse which is a quiet little street chock full of trendy boutiques and frequented by the young hip crowd.

The Flohschanze Flea Market is easy to get to; the nearest U-Bahn station is Feldstraße (Heiligengeistfeld) just across the road. It is a good idea to get there early when the market opens at 8am as with many flea markets all the good stuff will be gone in a few hours. But if you can’t quite make the early start it is still worth visiting later in the day too and it’s a great way to kill a couple of hours.
