The 10Best Guide to the Best Antique and Vintage Shopping In Berlin



Antiques add so much to a home or office: a sense of quality, history, refinement, and grace. It's no wonder that people find them hard to resist. If you're the type of person who can't pass by a shop, just wondering what may lie within, you'll relish Berlin's bounty. Berlin is fortunately full of these veritable treasure chests - so many neighborhoods preserve so many gems from a metropolis with one of the most storied histories of the twentieth century. While Berlin's various open-air markets are often times some of the best options to find antiques, there are also many antique shops that specialize in such departments. They are also open year-round. To be sure, a wide selection of antiques of all vintages, provenances, and places of origin can be found in Berlin, and 10Best will lead you to the top sources. Our editors and readers particularly applaud Berliner Trödelmarkt and Das Alte Bureau, as you will too after just one glance at the merchandise in these troves. It's without a doubt one of Berlin's best antique shops. Indeed, in a city with so many options, who knows where you will uncover your next favorite piece of clothing, furniture, or decorative element.
