Shopping in ancient buildings
Whether you're looking for a bite to eat, a souvenir or a special new piece for your art collection, Berlin's market halls have it all. Markthalle Neun in Kreuzberg is open every day except Sunday, and its reopening in 2011 means eager shoppers can flock here once more. Specialising in gastronomical treats, it hosts much-loved events like 'Street Food Thursday' and the 'Breakfast Market', held every third Sunday of the month. Marheineke Markthalle, also in Kreuzberg, is perfect for picking up excellent wines, fruit, vegetables, sumptuous delicatessen items and fresh flowers. To the north of the city is Tegel Indoor Market, with food and handicrafts on sale.
