7 of the best vintage shops in Berlin

Berlin is known as one of the coolest and fascinating cities in Europe, so no surprise it's home to one of the best selection of stylish vintage shops on the continent. Ranging from stunning clothing pieces and dainty jewellery to old books and records, these shops in Berlin have it all.

Vintage shops to wander through in Berlin

While environmental and ethical concerns are increasingly raised about fast fashion and high street chains, vintage stores will always be in style. Here are a few of the best ones that are definitely worth a visit on a day off for a niche find.

1. PicknWeight

Not everything in this vintage shop is pure gold, but most of it is very affordable. Treat shopping in this place as a treasure hunt as you browse clothes from the 60s and 70s and vibrant bulk sticker packs costing 25 euros per kilo. Whether it’s a new outfit for carnival or a themed party or an oversized sweater, PicknWeight has it all. Make sure to catch the special deals like Happy Hour Sale on Tuesdays from 12-15!

2. Sing Blackbird

A stark contrast to buying by the kilo, this stunning shop and café has specific, curated pieces from all the ages that are perfect for your bedroom or living room. Bring all your friends to peruse their designer bags, jeans, clothes, and jewellery collections - but make sure you don't all end up falling in love with the same piece, as they're one-of-a-kind! The Sing Blackbird also hosts events like flea markets, movie nights, and live concerts.

 

3. Mankii Vintage

Mankii Vintage is the ideal place for families with children due to their extensive selection of clothes for children, as well as adults. This large shop can feel like a village that's been collecting coats, dresses, shoes, and jewellery from the 1930s right through to the 1990s - all you need is a good chunk of time to give each piece the attention it deserves.

4. Trash Schick

Sometimes trashy can be chic! If you’re looking for a place that has punk authenticity, look no further. With the tatted interiors and the edgy collections, this shop completes the punk Berlin vibe. Find designer shoes and clothes mixed in with lesser-known pieces for a euro. The inventory changes weekly, so you can keep your collection fresh. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds go to charity, so shop knowing that it’s also going to a good cause.

With the attractive prices and gorgeous, classic pieces, the Femme Designer Secondhand shop is a definite visit for anyone that loves vintage shopping.

6. Antiquariat Weigelt

If you’re looking for more than vintage clothes and jewellery, the Antiquariat Weigelt specialises in vintage books and accessories. If you’re a bookworm, then this is a place for you! Find your favourite classic amongst the stacks and rows of literature in the shelves that cover the walls of the store. They also have rare selected clothing items directly from Paris and Milan. Don’t forget to look through the quaint accessories they have to offer.

7. Dandy Horse

This concept store has everything for all your vintage needs. There’s no set title to the shop because it’s a vintage store, but also a bicycle shop, a furniture store, and even a vinyl warehouse. However you want to title it, one thing’s for sure – you can’t be bored here and you’ll find something unique. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, but you’re looking for something, Dandy Horse has it.
