Having just settled into our apartment in Berlin little did I know one of the most hip flea market events took place just a stone throw away from our quarters. The flea market in Mauerpark, (known locally as Mauerpark Flohmarkt) is a hipster hangout hot spot every Sunday afternoon.

Initially, I thought a 'flea market' might be a tiny little hangout of young 20 somethings perusing around for vintage clothes and a quick bite to eat.

What I didn't expect was that this park would be absolutely packed predominantly with young 20 somethings (and those of all ages) in an event featuring multiple musical performances, picnics, basketball pick-up games, live performances and an actual flea market specializing in everything from vintage fashions, vinyl Cd's, GDR memorabilia, antiques and German street food.

The actual market itself was so crowded and bustling that after I stopped for a second to snap a photo I completely lost Audrey and her friend from London (Rebecca) for nearly the entire afternoon! It was only during a performance at the pit where Audrey finally spotted me again some two hours after we had been separated.

All in all, it was a brilliant way to spend an afternoon and I enjoyed the people watching and live performances even more than the flea market and street food. It just happened to be the warmest day of the spring that afternoon - certainly an added bonus. I'm hoping we'll get a chance to return again before we leave Berlin.

Having just moved to Berlin we visited Mauerpark on Sunday for its popular flea market, live performances and music.

Mauer Park, meaning 'Wall Park' refers to its former status as part of the Berlin Wall now covered in graffiti.

The popular flea market features grid stalls selling everything from vintage fashions, vinyl CD's, GDR memorabilia, antiques and street food.

This was the perfect way for us to spend our first Sunday in Berlin:
