Mauerpark Flea Market & Bearpit Karaoke

This flea-market takes place every Sunday afternoon in Mauerpark, a run-down park bordering Wedding and Prenzlauerberg which still has sports an oft-graffitied piece of the Berlin Wall. And while one could argue that it has become a bit too popular and touristy, Mauerpark remains beloved by locals of all stripes and can be a whole lot of fun.   The flea market itself is the official event, and sellers include folks hawking their handmade items (soap, t-shirts, photos, local designer fashion, posters, vinyl etc) as well as local folks who rent the booth space for the day to sell their old stuff.   The food scene around the flea market has really taken off and now you can find a huge variety of tasty street food that runs the global gamut, from dumplings to durum and strudels to stir-fries. In addition there are lots of performers and street musicians dotting the periphery of the flea-market. For most-people the highlight is the so-called Bearpit Karaoke that draws 1000 people from March to October (most Sundays, but not all – check the website). This grassroots event has turned into a Berlin institution as well as a mass – feel-good sing-along for the always supportive audience. Mauerpark offers a mini-festival atmosphere every Sunday, and if you can handle the crowds, it’s a Berlin “must”.
