    Some route planning tips. These shops are located very near each other:

    - Dig A Little Deeper, Staalplaat, Rotation

    - Melting Point, Franz & Josef, Da Capo, Oye

    - It Rocks, Drehmoment, Dense

    - Hard Wax, Soul Trade

    - Ghosttown, Tricky Tunes, Hip Hop Vinyl

    - Space Hall, Scratch

    (If you use a car for record shopping trips, be aware that parking lots in some Berlin districts don't come easy. I recommend using public transport. Stick to trains, it's easier to understand than the buses. Don't worry about food or shopping for other things than music. Berlin has a ridiculous amount of cheap and good food joints from all over the globe. If your accompanying girl/boyfriends or just friends get bored there should also something be there shoppingwise in most of the areas of the listed shops, be it clothing, books, arts, DVDs or whatever)

    Useful links for logistics:

    Public Transport

    Online City Map

    Bonus Tip: If you like to dig, check the flea markets on Boxhagener Platz and Mauerpark on weekends. There are plenty other markets, but these are the best in my book. Check the city mags Tip or Zitty for details.

    styles: exp/electronic, avantgarde, neue musik

    go to Rigaer Str. / Samariterstr. to find a punk-shop and straight across the street in Samariterstraße another record shop with mostly 2nd hand stuff (pop, rock, electronic, etc).
    the punk store is a bit filthy, but may be good for pop/rock finds aswell; the other shop is never open it seems.
    (public transport: U5 Samariterstraße or S Frankfurter Allee)

    FREIZEITGLAUBEN: you'll also find a techno/house/experimental/idm-shop at Bersarinplatz. not worth visting unless you're into, well..., techno, house and idm. :(
    (public transport: U5 Frankfurter Tor)

    there's also a house / hip-hop record shop in the smaller part of Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße, near Alexanderplatz.
    AVOID at all cost! VERY expensive and "new" records might turn out to be 2nd hand copies in bad condition (grrrr). salesman in the shop might treat you like a beginner and try to fuck you over too...
    yes, this is first hand experience. fuckers.

    I´m kind of surprised nobody´s mentioned this place yet:


    Club Sound Records
    Eberswalderstr. 32
    10437 Berlin

    Tel.: 030 - 449 27 03
    Fax: 030 - 449 27 03

    They specialize in garbage (trance that is), but the guy keeps ordering lots of good techno, house and electro records, which nobody buys and quite often end up in the bargain bin. Found some nice dutch electro records there which nobody else had at the time, not even Drehmoment (In fact I´m wondering if I should really tell everybody about this ?).

    Also, please boycott Space Hall. The people running the place are complete wankers and unless you´re a wellknown DJ, you´ll probably be treated like shit. Even if they sold every KMS record for 1$, I will never ever buy anything from these bastards again.
  • guyverIII over 16 years ago

    does Tonhalle on Eberswalder have a site? That was a great store, real gems.

    As for the above I recall after attempting to put back a decal record after having a listen i was told:

    "That's my job. I don't know where you come from but here we put the records back!"

    God love being Irish abroad, everyone thinks your English.
  • Speciman over 16 years ago

    Also some "Floh Markt" are worth being checked. I'm talking about those public markets that take place on sundays usually. Personally, I already found some really interesting stuff there and of course the price is usually very interesting...here are 2 examples of records I bought there for a very cheap price:

    Jeff Mills - The Extremist
    The Pump Panel - Confusion / Re-Mover -> bought this crazy original 2x12" for only 5 €!!!!

    There are surely a lot of different "Floh Markts" but the one I had been to was on the Boxhagener Platz.

    Hope you'll be as lucky as I had been...;-))
  • jape over 16 years ago

    That Club Sound Records store sounds interesting. After all I DO play trance (well, and techno etc). I will visit Berlin at the end of a trip through Central Europe. I don't think I will want to carry around records all the time, but since it's my last stop I may visit a couple of stores there :)
  • DJPC over 16 years ago

    You should also check these stores in Berlin:

    Apollo Disc

    Kantstr. 130
    10625 Berlin

    for HipHop, Electronic Dance (House, Techno, Electro), Rock and Indie Vinyl Albums, great back catalogue stock on all styles, too!!
    and a reasonable cd selection.

    next is


    13581 Berlin (Spandau), Klosterstrasse 12 - Fon:030/332 20 72

    basically comparable to Apollo, but still different enough and worthwhile visiting as it's close to the old part of Spandau.

    Also of interest:

    near Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free there's a fantastic second hand store with lots of vinyl albums covering all areas and a nice slice of 7" vinyl thrown in:

    Rock Steady Records

    Motzstr. 9; Schöneberg; (0)30-2172721
    Nollendorfplatz Tube

    finally for the moment:

    Shubashi in Steglitz

    hubertusstraße 7,
    fon: (0)30 - 79 74 13 50
    close to Tube Schloßstr.

    CDs, DVDs, VHS and Vinyls galore! additionally posters + stuff
    ranges from pop, rock, metal, black, jazz to german music.
  • lcaise over 16 years ago

    And where is dj shop in Berlin with lot of used and 2nd hand records from disco house, to minimal and techno ??
  • lcaise over 16 years ago

  • simcut over 16 years ago

    I've been to both DNS and to Clubsounds.

    Clubsounds is great if your into trance but the guy didnt seem very polite when I spoke to him...maybe I caught him at a bad time?

    I also popped in DNS Records which is 6 or 7 shops down the street and the guy in there was really nice....really helpful but their trance selection is non existant, they specialise in other genres instead....they have lots of records in there. House & Techno in particular :)

  • tricky23 over 14 years ago

    Downbeat Recordstore closed down since 5/9/2005
  • Finn over 14 years ago

    Some updates:

    Mitte Musik has moved to Libauer Str., which is actually not in Mitte but in Friedrichshain, same as Audio/In, which is a very recommendable store.

    While there, check:

    Krossener Str. 18, D-10245/ B Berlin

    Good for Disco digging, and lots of other weird stuff. Good Jazz selection, too.

    Dense has moved to the old location of Freizeitglauben, which is no more.

    Soultrade fused with Scratch, and moved in to their shop at Zossener Str.

    There is also Leila M, and they have an affiliated Second Hand Store around the corner on Torstr., which is the storefront of this, so worth checking.

    Dig A Little Deeper has moved:

    10178 berlin
    opened: /wed 12-19 uhr, sat 12-18

    As far as I know, DNS and It Rocks are no more.

    I'm trying to find again a great small record store located somewhere between Kastanienallee and Mitte, that had an incredible selection of Kraut Rock, Punk, New Wave, EBM and industrial. The guy was very friendly and he also had craters and second-hand books regularly exposed on the street right outside the shop.
    Can anyone help?
  • praxis over 13 years ago

    The Praxis record shop, specialized in breakcore, hard-&speedcore, hard drum'n'bass, heavy dubstep and experimental electronics (plus magazines, books, dvd's etc) has moved!
    After 2 years with Tricky Tunes at Mainzer Str. it's now located in the Cagliostro bar/cafe at Lenbachstr. 10 next to Ostkreuz.
    Opening times are 15-21h every day except mondays, Thursdays it's open till midnight (and it's quite common on other days that it's open later than 9...
    This is the store of the Praxis label, so you may also find some older breakcore and hardcore rarities.
    Since it's now located in a bar, you can also just go there for a coffee, beer or other drinks... and check out some records while you're at it.

  • ballmouse over 12 years ago

    berlin was somewhat disappointing for records. I failed to get to the flea market on sunday, but the only 2 shops i thought were worth visiting for purchases were hardwax and rotation records. the rest pretty much sell records for 8 euros minimum. and the ones worth buying are at least 10 euros.

    i visited hardwax, space hall, oye, hiphopvinyl, rotation, da capo, melting point (not sure), scratch, and cover music.

    Also check Power Park - you always may find there something interresting.

    In search off: slowdive/ sufjan stevens / yo la tengo / interpol / the national / ..

    Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free at Nollendorfplatz, as mentioned somewhere.

    Vopo Records at Danziger Straße (U Eberswalder Straße) might have some stuff too, bought some Joy Division bootlegs there a few weeks ago, also an Interpol one some years back.

    Freak Out Records at Prenzlauer Allee is situated closely to Vopo Records and might be worth checking out for you.

    Another shop near those two is at Schönhauser Allee, don't know the name tho. Walking down that road (towards U Eberswalder Straße) from the station of the same name it's a few minutes away on the left side. Plenty of CD's including bootlegs, relatively uninteresting vinyl section, found some gems for fair prices there tho.

    They stock used reggae -- you'll need to call them up before visiting and make sure they let you in. They're not a walk-in store!
  • blind_squirrel over 11 years ago

    I have no clue if this one still exists tho. Looked like a good shop when I was living in Berlin some years back.

  • tricky23 over 11 years ago

    nice Record Fair for hard electronic music (Breakcore / Techno / Drum&Bass - related) next saturday 21.1.2012 also dj's are playing

    it's inside a church so don't talk shit :-)

    heres the original promo-text (in german only, sorry):

    1. Friedrichshainer Plattenbörse im Jugend[widerstands]museum
    Rigaer Straße 9-10, 10247 Berlin
    Samstag 21.Januar 2012 zwischen 14.00 und 22.00 Uhr

    Anmeldung: Spende
    DJ´s: Crash 0.1, Christoph Fringeli, Evil Trust, Stanislas, u.a.
    Anmeldung unter [email protected]

    Hallo zusammen,
    Zum Start in die neue Woche habe ich eine Veranstaltungsankündigung für alle die den warmen Sound und das Knistern von Schallplatten noch zu schätzen wissen. Es gab Zeiten da war die Schallplatte viel mehr als oldschool. Da war sie nämlich das fast einzige Medium mit dem man seine Musik weltweit verbreiten konnte. Da gabs noch kein Internet, keine digitalen Formate wie mp3 oder wave, nur die Platte und Mehrspurbänder. Die Vinylschallplatte ist heute immernoch das haltbarste Medium auf der Welt, selbst ein kratzer gibt ihr einen individuellen Charme. Sie ist nach wie vor Kult bei DJ´s Sammlern und Musikbegeisterten rund um die Erde.
    Selbst die Verkaufszahlen für Neupressungen steigen immer wieder oder bleiben einfach stabil.
    Das ist ein Grund für uns die Platte zu feiern...
    Deshalb haben wir uns in Absprache mit eingen Friedrichshainer Plattenläden dazu entschlossen eine Plattenbörse ins Leben zu rufen um die Läden, wie auch die Musikbegeisterten die möglichkeit zu geben zu stöbern, zu tauschen und auch mal wieder einzukaufen.
    Diese findet am 21.01.2012 in den Räumen des Jugend[widerstans]museum, zwischen 14.00 Uhr und 22.00 Uhr statt.
    Die Idee stammt aus der Feder von "Praxis Records" und "Neuromantic-violations"
    Beteiligt sind außerdem "Tricky Tunes", "YaYa 23", der "Powerpark Recordstore", eventuell das "Audio In", "possible music" und der Second Hand Laden in der Petersburger Straße.
    Natürlich sind auch alle Menschen die noch kistenweise Vinyl zuhause haben herzlich eingeladen ihre Leckerbissen feil zu bieten.
    Abhörplätze werden durch uns zur verfügung gestellt und für die musikalische Untermalung des Ganzen Sorgen unter anderem: Crash 0.1, Christoph Fringeli, Evil Trust, Stanislas und wer sonst noch Bock hat aufzulegen.
    Alle die mit machen wollen sollten eine an diese Absendeadresse schreiben.

    Wir freuen uns auf reges Interesse und tanzen uns schon mal warm :)

    well sorted in all genres.

    constantly buying in great selection of dancemusic, aprox 400 discorecords, 600 house & techno 90s, 900 house & techno post 2000, 2000 wave, 2000 rock 70s, 300 reggae, 2000 jazz and so on.

    I'm flying to Berlin next week, any Hip Hop vinyl shops?

  • midnight-nonstop over 10 years ago

    try powerpark...
  • HM-2 over 10 years ago

    hhv.de is your best bet. However their store only carries a tiny selection of their stock which is probably one of the largest in Europe. Check out their site, place an order and click the pick up option in checkout. Their store has nothing extraordinary, no second hand records etc.
    Just around the corner from the hhv store there's Audio-In where I found some nice second hand stuff. Apart from that Spacehall has a great selection. I also can't understand why nearly everyone here says the guys in there are dickheads. I was there last year and the dudes were friendly as you'd expect and I didn't buy a ton of records either. Also check out the discogs seller recordsale-de. You can pick up the records at the Leila M store.

    Hello guys
    will visit Berlin in about 20 days.
    I have heard of a small shop near Kreuzberg (or somewhere else? dont know), which carries only punk and hardcore vinyls, second hand.
    Its a small one, owned by a mohican.
  • HM-2 over 10 years ago

    HM-2 edited over 10 years ago
    There's Bis aufs Messer, Core Tex and Vopo (I think this is the one you meant). Bis aufs Messer has a good selection of Punk/Hardcore and some good Metal records. I didn't check for Core Tex because people told me it's mainly clothing and my time was limited. I checked their online mailorder and there weren't really interesting records there for me but I'm more after extreme Metal records. Vopo had quite a lot of Punk/Hardcore records but they know what they're selling. You won't make any bargains there. Didn't see a mohican in there but it's small and has lots of Hardcore records :)
    Here's the adresses:
    Core Tex
    Oranienstr. 3

    Bis aufs Messer
    Marchlewski Str. 107
    (train stop is Warschauer Str.)

    Vopo Records
    Danziger Str. 31
  • rasb over 10 years ago

    for punk and hardcore records you should check out STATIC SHOCK RECORDS in kreuzberg. they have shitloads of 2nd hand and rare stuff and also lots of recent stuff. the address is bürknerstr.6 and it's near the u-train station schönleinstr.

    CORE TEX is ok, sometimes they have really good 2nd hand stuff. but the shop is pretty expensive and tourist-orientated.

    VOPO records and BISAUFSMESSER are good if you're looking for recent stuff and re-releases. not so much rare stuff in there.

    REAL DEAL records in kreuzberg (near u-train station südstern) is small but carries lots of punk and hardcore vinyl (mainly 2nd hand).
  • midnight-nonstop over 10 years ago

    power park is now disfunct due to gentri-refurb-actions.

    new shop is open on boxhagener str 19/20 with less space but even more records, you know, like magic :-D

    Really glad to hear that but I'm also curious - how can it be possible, that a friend of mine
    recently bought a record there !? (like magic I guess :)
  • Appendickies over 10 years ago

    Thanks guys for the tips!
    I really couldn't catch up Static Shock, time was pretty limited.
    But i did check Alley Music (find some pretty great gems there like Normahl, Razors, China White etc etc) and i also got a pretty good discount-awesome shop!

    Also, Q-Tip records is an AWESOME place. Nice prices, friendly owner, loved it! Will surely check it again in the near future, if i go again to Berlin. He did offer me for free a Chaos Z 7", and i did get a great discount for some records i got (Among them it was Naytia/Graue Zellen split lp)! The owner, is such a sweet and friendly guy!
  • midnight-nonstop over 10 years ago



    now the store is in full bloom, keeping track with the disco, the reaggae, the house, the techno, the electronic, the jazz.

    esp. for house-techno you should pay a visit like right now :-D

    What about stores that sell a good selection of 2nd hand/used Detroit & Chicago influenced sounds? Can anyone recommend any?

  • lcaise over 10 years ago

    You can find this stuff at all recordstores which are oriented in 2nd hand. You need to dig crates mate! Viel Spass :)
  • zulphur over 10 years ago

    Going to Belin on Monday and need help to find good Rock/POP/Electronic/Alternative second hand stores. what stores do you recommend. Alles bestens! Z
  • Lay-far over 10 years ago

    "Melting Point" has the most rude personnel I've ever met. Spare your nerves and visit some others in the vicinity - Oye Records, Rotation, etc.
  • zjz over 10 years ago

    Hey, going to Berlin tomorrow, for a month, so like, probably going to go to every store mentioned in here anyway, but....

    Can someone recommend any good stores for second hand that AREN'T Hard Trance or Progressive House? Ie. Jazz, kraut, disco, folk, rock blah blah blah, even some Detroit/Basic Channel blah blah blah, but just not the stores where shitty Eurotrance Dj's wanna check out. Oh yeah, preferably anywhere with heaps of Bargain Bin 1 euro crates etc. Oh, and listening stations ;-)
  • praxis over 10 years ago

    After several months without a public store, Praxis has joined forces with Yaya23, and is now located here (literally next door to Cagliostro where it was based in 2009-11):

    Praxis/Yaya23 Lenbachstrasse 9 – 10245 Berlin

    - the shop is open EVERY FRIDAY from 14-19h or by appointment!

    Yaya23 has been there for many years, specialising in hardtek, breakbeat and underground techno, but also carrying breakcore, hardcore and dubstep. To this the full selection of the Praxis store is added (check praxis.c8.com/shop)
    plus a bargain crate (which isn't online), as well as t-shirts and printed stuff...
  • JRyall over 9 years ago

    Has the Tiergarten fleamarket already been mentioned?

    I was there last sunday and I had blast. At least 10 vinyl vendors carring mostly 60's/70's/80's rock/funk/black/hiphop wax. Decently priced too.
    Some vendors had stacks of records completely unorganized, some a bit more browsable.
    Would repeat!
  • Finn over 9 years ago

    Just opened:

    Adalbertstr. 9, 2. backyard (Kreuzberg, near Kottbusser Tor)

    Amazing space, knowledgeable staff. Thousands of second hand records. House, Techno, Disco and lots of other styles.

    One for the serious diggers...

  • Gammeleisen over 8 years ago

    Hi everyone! I´m going to Berlin in a couple of weeks, and I'm wondering if anyone could share some updated info on what stores to visit? I'm looking for 2nd hand stuff only - rock, power pop, punk and soul (60s-80s). No HC, dance, techno... What five stores would you recommend?
  • shivae over 8 years ago

    Funhouse Records (Prenzlauer Berg)
    Holy's Hit Records (Kreuzberg)
    Recordstore (Mitte)
    Galactic Supermarket (Friedrichshain)
    Da Capo Antiquariat (Prenzlauer Berg)

    just a few worth a visit..

    Gammeleisen, I strongly recommend the Tiergarten street market that it's on every Sunday.
    I found a bunch of cool wax last year. There were about 10/15 vendors that carried mostly used records from the '60s/'70s/'80s. Decently priced too.
  • blind_squirrel over 8 years ago

    Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free at Nollendorfplatz, as mentioned somewhere.

    Vopo Records at Danziger Straße (U Eberswalder Straße) might have some stuff too, bought some Joy Division bootlegs there a few weeks ago, also an Interpol one some years back.

    Freak Out Records at Prenzlauer Allee is situated closely to Vopo Records and might be worth checking out for you.

    Another shop near those two is at Schönhauser Allee, don't know the name tho. Walking down that road (towards U Eberswalder Straße) from the station of the same name it's a few minutes away on the left side.

    Freak Out Records is closed now. All other shops are still going, and going well at that.

    Vopo Records and Mr. Dead and Msr. Free are always decent for digging. I'm always pleased with the German punkrock selection (among many other styles) of the former and the cheapos / bargain bin ("Fundgrube" - now try translating that!) of the latter.

    Friendly and helpful stuff too, which goes a long way in this city.

    The list in the sister site of Discogs, Vinylhub, is quite extensive already. There are some dupes there, though, and very little info about most shops. Berlin oggers, you can do better!
