We believe that flea markets are an essential part of city traveling. Visiting a flea market gives you that feeling as if you're a local and just looking for a little something for your new apartment around the corner.

During the spring and summer season, the open-air flea markets flourish in Copenhagen. There you might find anything from overlooked antiquities, old jewelry, crockery, vintage Copenhagen porcelain sculptures, vinyl records to famous Danish designed chairs.

Some of the markets that pop up during the warm season are Loppemarked På Carlsberg, Remisen, Nørrebrogade, and Ravnsborggade where the goods are usually a little cheaper than at the famous Thorvaldsen Antique Market in central Copenhagen. Usually, it's better to arrive early for a better deal. The markets tend to be crowded. They usually take place on weekends, some of them only once a month, so check the exact dates and opening hours before heading there.
