Going to a flea market is a cheap and fun way to spend a day out in Munich. As well as the three annual Auer Dult events there are regular weekend flea markets.
Among the best are the Messegelände (fairground) Riem, the Flohmarkt am Ostbahnhof and the Riesen-Flohmarkt Theresienwiese (Huge Flea Market on the Oktoberfest grounds).
For more info about upcoming flea market dates and locations, visit www.flohmarkt-termine.net (site in German).
So there you are, 10 ideas to help you keep hold of your cash in Munich while still enjoying your stay. Do you have other ideas about how to experience Munich on the cheap? If so, I’d love to hear them, so please add your comments below.
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
