Winterfeldt Square

Place of the largest weekly market in Berlin

Winterfeldt Square

The Winterfeldt Square

Not only Schönebergers, but locals from all over the city and of course visitors to Berlin flock to the Winterfeldtmarkt on Winterfeldtplatz week after week to shop.

The square is about 1.5 kilometers from the Schöneberg Hotel: the path runs straight ahead along Acacia Street and Goltz Street to the freestanding Church of St. Matthias. It borders the southern edge of Winterfeldtplatz, which extends behind it over a length of 280 meters and a width of 80 meters.

Der Platz

Winterfeldtplatz itself was laid out in 1893 and named after the Prussian general Hans Karl von Winterfeldt. Most of the former Wilhelminian style buildings around it were destroyed during the Second World War. The few remaining buildings are listed as historic monuments. The eye-catching facades are made of glazed, partly colored bricks.

Due to the subway station Nollendorfplatz (U1, U2, U3, U4), which is only 200 meters away, Winterfeldtplatz is easily accessible from almost all starting points in the city. From the hotel Schönberg stroll in twenty minutes Winterfeldtplatz.

The market

For the first time already in 1890 fruit and vegetable traders came together on the square to sell their goods. Since 1990, Berlin’s largest weekly market has been held every Wednesday and Saturday. Traditionally, it is more crowded on Saturdays. Up to 250 stalls await customers with high-quality international and regional products. On offer are meat and fish products, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs and flowers. Much is available in organic quality. Clothing, handicrafts, jewelry, tea or fine spices are also available.
At the many snack stands, hungry shoppers can fortify themselves with smoked fish, delicious desserts or a coffee.
If you feel more like sitting down, you will find numerous cafés, bars and restaurants on the edge of the square – many of them with cult character!

By the way: Since 2019, an additional “Vegan Weekly Market” takes place on Fridays.
Zeiten: 11.00 bis 18.00 Uhr.

Weekly market hours:

Mittwoch: 8.00 bis 14.00 Uhr
Samstag: 8.00 bis 16.00 Uhr
