In the U.S., Craigslist is a very popular website for posting classified ads (i.e. buying and selling things or services from private parties). Is there a German equivalent?

I voted for closing this question. It is not really a travel related question. –  Andra Nov 20 '11 at 18:09
    
I'm also missing the travel-related story. –  RoflcoptrException Nov 20 '11 at 18:27
    
There is Craigslist in Germany, as well as practically everywhere else in the world. –  Flimzy Nov 20 '11 at 18:37
    
@Flimzy: But whether anyone uses it in a given country is a different story. I just checked and, to my surprise, there is a craigslist for Helsinki too, but absolutely no posts there (save for a few automated spam messages). –  Jonik Nov 20 '11 at 18:44
    
Indeed. I find it's not used very much here in Mexico (but it's not completely vacant)... although a friend says it's very popular in Costa Rica. So it seems rather hit-and-miss. (Although I have to agree with everyone else who says this question is off topic here.) –  Flimzy Nov 20 '11 at 18:45

You could try Kijiji, which is very similar to craigslist. Here is the German version.

What items exactly are you trying to buy or sell? In Germany this is usually done on ebay.de (expensive) or hood.de (no listing fees); there is no (popular) german version of craigslist as far as i know.

I have never heard of anyone who used Kijiji (maybe because most people would already fail if they try to spell or type it?), but there is also http://kleinanzeigen.ebay.de/anzeigen/. Not exactly sure what the difference is since both sites belong to ebay anyway.

Or try to look for "kleinanzeigen" + yourcity + itemname on google.de if you know what you're looking for...

kleinanzeigen.ebay.de/anzeigen is actually the German version of Kijiji... put Kijiji.de on your browser and it will redirect you there... –  yms Nov 21 '11 at 1:38
