“Treasure trove from Rich to Poor”

Frankfurter Flohmarkt
Ranked #65 of 442 things to do in Frankfurt
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This flea market is a must for any bargain-hunters and those interested in exploring. Not an antique market, although some stalls are run by collectors, this is a place for all human life. You can buy as-new clothes for a Euro a piece, stalls piled high with garments for rummaging through; you can pore over trinkets and little china bits and bobs or dig through boxes for old toys, tools and buttons. Most stall-holders manage a few words of english if needed and there are usually one or two places to grab a snack between deals!
It's best to get there around noon to start getting the knock-down prices, as many stalls pack up around 1pm.
Note: this is a weekly market but it moves back and forth between Museumsufer in town and Lindleystrasse which is down by the docks. The Lindleystrasse market in much more for ordinary folk and less for the artsy collectors. Still interesting to see what people here value and what the going-rate for things is. I bought a bike for my two-month stay in Frankfurt and later, a watercolour of the city, painted just after the war, for 4 Euros.
