Kollwitzplatz Saturday Market

The Saturday market at Kollwitz Platz in Prenzlauer Berg is a fabulous way to pass a sunny morning. The nearby playground keep the children occupied but my son enjoys wandering the market with me getting freebie samples of food in exchange for his lovely smile!

The market is a mix of food (a lot if not all is organic), clothes, children's things and flowers (to name a few). It is not cheap but the food is amazing and a great way to put together a picnic to enjoy in one of the nearby green spaces.

It starts around 9.30ish and finishes at 4pm. It can get busy with buggies and strollers later in the day.

It is located along Kollwitzstrasse alongside Kollwitzplatz now not Knaackstrasse as it used to be. Rumour has it that a lawyer moved into Knaackstrasse and didn't like the noise so got them to move!

Address: Kollwitzstrasse am Kollwitzplatz, 10435 Berlin
