So much stuff

This is a great flee market and it's held every Sunday. Even the underground parking lot is used to display the antiques. I only which there was a few more options for street food.

This is not JUST a flea market but a place where you can find very nice valuable antique. Every language is heard. A various choice of old stuff! Very nice to visit. Hard not to buy some curiosity!

We took in the Brocante and had a wonderful time. There was a small boutique hotel near the cathedral we stayed at that was an easy walk. The free marked tour of the town is also well done. I highly recommend for a day trip!

We went to Tongeren to visit the Roman Museum and found out about this fair from our hotel. It is held on Sunday morning and the number of stalls is impressive (the biggest open air antiques fair in Europe we were told proudly by the hotel). Stalls line many of the streets, fill squares, large sheds and a lower ground... More

We drove 5 hours from Stuttgart to Tongeren on a Saturday, stayed overnight, and were ready to go at 0700 when the market opened on Sunday morning. On this trip we found a beautiful, blue tiled kitchen work table for 80 euro, wrought iron sewing machine bases for about 45 euro each, and the seltzer bottles I wanted that range... More

I have read so many marvelous things about the antique market / flea market in Tongeren which is supposed to be the biggest one in Belgium. So we visited it last Sunday. First of all: it is big and it is impressive. No doubt. But: the atmosphere of flea markets (that I love so much) is simply not there. It... More

I have gone multiple times with friends. Love looking for little trinkets and treasures. A great variety of items from antiques to near items. Most is outdoors but two sections of it is indoors. Most areas are big enough to take a stroller but wouldn't really recommend taking kids here. This is definitely a fun trip to go on with... More
