In Vienna, markets for “taking a bite” or mining relics

For anyone arriving in Vienna with the idea that they will find only sophistication and a certain monotony, visiting the Naschmarkt and, soon after, wandering around the Flohmarkt will be an amazing experience.

In German, “nasche” means something like “take a bite”. Thus, Naschmarkt (the “bite market”) is the ideal environment for those who want to kick their legs and try (many) new things. The traders offer small pieces of their delicacies in order to “hook” the customer and, from bite to bite, it is quite possible that the person will try various foods and end up skipping lunch.

Naschmarkt (the “bite market”

Naschmarkt is one of the most interesting markets in Europe. It started operating around 1780, initially as a place where farmers in the interior of the country sold their products to the Viennese. As time went by, the market expanded and gained great diversity – especially with the participation of immigrants, mainly from Islamic countries. But there is also Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Syrian, Turkish, Greek cuisine…

Breads, cheeses, sweets, meats, fish, seafood, beers, wines, spirits … it’s all there.

Flea market relics

Right after Naschmart, the visitor is impressed by the size and diversity of the Flohmarkt (Flea Market): there are more than 400 exhibitors, offering the most varied products. Clothes, pictures, tapestry, chandeliers, plates, crockery, vases, cutlery, statues, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, watches, musical instruments, electronic devices … everything imaginable and a little more are available in the market, the vast majority in impeccable condition.
