Best Berlin flea markets

Besides the usual antique relics, books, bric-a-brac or furniture that you find in most of the flea markets in Europe, you should look for Russian remnants from the German Democratic Republic. Flea markets offer an alternation to the conventional shopping possibilities and are steadily gaining popularity since junk gets more and more valued.
