If you find Mauer Park a little too try-hard-trendy and think Arkonaplatz is lacking a little scope then this old school indoor haven for the fleamarket purist is probably where you’ll find your refuge. Sprawling across three cavernous halls in the Arena complex, the stalls at this bargain-hunting bad-boy never come down—the traders just return every weekend adding to the precarious piles that are already threatening to spontaneously implode.
And if something exists, or has ever existed ever, there’s a solid chance you’re going to find it here: long-lost technological titbits, low-budget furniture from household clearance companies, venerable toolboxes and TV remote controls (to replace the one still being digested by your sofa) included. Those with short attention spans take note though—this one’s definitely going to require some dedicated searching. So strap on your concentration cap, or bang a couple of ritalin, and dive in.
