Bric a brac in DÜSSELDORF

For those that enjoy the hunt for eclectic and old items, bric-a-brac, Trödel, and flea markets, Trödelmärkte, in Düsseldorf are excellent places to find unusual and useful stuff for the home. Germans adore them as much as many other nationalities.

Somebody’s junk can always be somebody else’s treasure. Düsseldorf offers great alternatives for in-person hunting for a special curiosity, a bargain or vintage treasure.

Since many flea markets are outdoors, friendly chats with stallholders can be combined with a breath of fresh air while learning a little more about any purchases.

Car boot sales in and around Düsseldorf offer everything from antiques and antiquities, furniture large and small, new and second hand clothes, books, records, old toys as well as new articles of everyday use such toothpaste, batteries or smaller household goods. Special flea markets for children’s wear and toys are very popular in Düsseldorf too. At several venues, hundreds of stands are run by private individuals or families as well as professional dealers. The enormous variety of items on offer is phenomenal.

Charity shops such as Cash & Raus and Oxfam as well as smaller second hand stores selling varied items can be found in the city.

Germans, on the whole, love and respect pets and are especially friendly to dogs. Keeping a pet on a leash is a must apart from inside official, special pens in the city. Surprisingly for some, dogs are also permitted on public transport and inside restaurants unless otherwise stated.
