During the week, more than 170 stalls sell everything from fresh meat, seafood, and fruits and vegetables, to international wines, and artisan cheeses. You can also feast on a variety of ethnic cuisines, which include Indian, Middle Eastern, and Asian. At the flea market held every Saturday, you can find vintage and antique knick knacks and clothing.
Overcome the language barrier and sample local bites that you may otherwise have missed on a food tour or biking tour, which typically stop at Naschmarkt.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Once you’ve stocked up on fresh goods, head to one of the many surrounding cafés, where you can tuck into local pastries or sip some traditional Viennese coffee.
- The market is wheelchair-accessible, though it may be hard to maneuver through the crowds during the peak hours of the day.
- The market is open-air so dress for the weather.
How to Get There
The market is located south of Vienna’s historic center. Take the metro U4 line to the Karlsplatz stop at the end of the Naschmarkt.
When to Get There
The Naschmarkt’s food stalls are open weekdays from early morning until late afternoon. On Saturdays, the flea market follows similar times to the food market.
Vienna’s other historic market is the Kohlmarkt (Coal Market), though gone are the days that coal is sold here. Today, this is a high-end shopping area with boutiques by brands such as Cartier, Giorgio Armani, Tiffany & Co., and Louis Vuitton. It’s famous for its fine jewelry so is a fun place to go window shopping.
