Vintage is always in vogue in Berlin. From high-end designer fashion to bargain buys, Berlin’s streets are dotted with secondhand clothing stores where you can find one-of-a-kind gems. Stop in and dig for treasure at one of these vintage fashion stores and boutiques next time you’re in the city.

PicknWeight Kilo

This is the mecca of all vintage stores, with its influence felt all over the city and other major cities in Germany. It combines the forces of four different shops – Made in Berlin in Mitte, Garage in Schöneberg and the PicknWeight concept stores in both Kreuzberg and Mitte. They offer a multifaceted range of secondhand clothing taken from all through the ages – including eccentric costume wear to relevant separates, fun prints and patterns to quirky cuts – and the best part is you pay by weight. Items are marked in different sticker colours, each with its own value so you always know what to expect to pay. The company takes pride in curating individual style away from the mass-produced and selling good quality garments at fair prices.

1. Blank Vintage


Blank Vintage is one of the cheapest places for secondhand attire in Berlin. This store in the heart of Friedrichshain has a particular penchant for 1980s and 1990s fashion. They have a steady roll of new stock coming in just waiting to be discovered in their front room, dedicated to handpicked pieces and individual finds, while the back room is for really cheap pieces going for single digits. Keep your eyes peeled for their one euro sales.

2. Mauer Park Flohmarkt

Market, Park, Shop

This is not exactly a shop, but it’s definitely one of Berlin’s most trusted and popular spaces for vintage finds. Flea markets are an integral part of the city’s identity as a DIY hub where they have created a platform – and therefore a livelihood – for many independent sellers. Mauerpark is open on weekends and is especially popular on Sundays, where people arrive with the same dedication as if going to Sunday mass. Find great jackets, coats and specialised items, starting from the uber-cheap and working up to the more pricey for one-of-a-kind items.
