27.04.2024 from 10:00 Vide Grenier (Old Town Flea Market)

Discover DeBern’s trouvailles: every year at the end of April, the “Vide Grenier” flea market in the Lower Old Town invites you to stroll, browse and discover.

A stroll under the six km-long Berner arcades is a real experience every time – particularly at the Vide Grenier! The annual flea market in the Old Town draws people in for an extended shopping trip or “gänggele” (a Bernese German term for when you buy/treat yourself to a little something during a shopping trip) and a leisurely stroll through Kramgasse and Gerechtigkeitsgasse.

The locals and “Lädeli” (little shop) owners display the treasures that they have conjured up from their attics, apartments and cellars on numerous market stalls; they are always keen to haggle with the many curious passers-by. At the Flea Market it goes without saying that if you want to get your hands on the best finds, you should get up early – it’s worth it!
