“A fun trip searching for antiques in Tongeren ”

Tongeren Flea Market
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Tongeren

Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We drove up to Tongeren, Belgium sightseeing along the way which is something I like to do. Then stayed in Tongeren overnight, and got an early start searching through the many antiques available at the market. Something my wife loves to do, and I enjoy it to. There are many vendors spread across the town, and many antique shops which are open to explore on Sundays so wear walking shoes. We explored a mixture of both. Give yourself plenty of time to explore, and if you are looking for that larger piece be sure to bring a means to get it home (van/trailer). We saw some great deals as well as some things we thought to be overpriced, but then bartering for the best price is half of the fun. We will go back.

This was a long drive to Tongeren in Belgium, but I have to say it was all worthwhile, we filled our Suv with pieces of furniture, Oil paintings, Mirror and Glassware. The hotel Huys van steins is right next to the market and was outstanding,Lucie and Jimmy`s restaurant is one street away and both are a must if you visit here. The town centre is next to you and worthwhile wandering the streets, as it is Belgium`s oldest town and steeped in history.

We went on a Sunday morning expecting to see a flea market, what we saw has been described as the largest antique fair in Belgium. It went on for ever, down both sides of the street, around the corner and then more streets,into shops and the underground car park. The range and quality of items on offer was staggering, it took a massive amount of will power not to overload our suitcases.

We visited the market Oct 1st, 2017. It is a good one. Full of stalls with different items. Really huge variety. It is well organzied and people are very friendly. Good prices and it's always worth trying to bargain.

One of our only outings with our 4 month old baby while in Belgium, we were impressed by the extent and quality of the market. The atmosphere was relaxed and it was perfect to do with our son who slept most of the way.
There was also a local craft market nearby with local producers that was worth trying although I don't know how frequent it is.
We will be back!
