Vienna has a torrid love affair with the past, a nostalgic longing that can be felt throughout the city's cobblestone streets. Austria's capital hosts several weekly flea markets and is home to a large antique district that is home to antique dealers and the Vienna’s auction house. In fact, it is easy to spend an entire weekend searching for antique treasures!
However, flea market enthusiasts and antique lovers who are looking forward to finding a dizzying array of Austrian antiques, from old furniture to jewelry, should mark the Neubaugassen flea market on their calendars. The first Neubaugassen flea market took place in 1983, and no one could have predicted that it would become such a recurring success.
Neubaugasse is one of the most famous shopping streets in Vienna. It is located in the 7th district of Vienna and is also known as the "Street of Specialists" or "Wiens KUHlste Einkaufsweide".
Twice a year, in spring and fall, Vienna's flea market lovers get the chance to go on a two-day shopping spree when the entire length of Neubaugasse - from Lerchenfelder Strasse to Mariahilferstrasse - is transformed into a 1.2 mile (2 km) long flea market. While trendy year-round, Neubaugasse really comes alive on flea market weekends, with over 100,000 visitors and 360 vendors selling antiques, vintage design furniture, retro home decor, toys, clothing, as well as locally made fashion, organic cosmetics, arts and crafts, food and everything else that is hip and cool.
Many say that the Neubaugassen flea market is not about buying. It's about finding things, being inspired and walking through history. And even if you don't plan to buy anything, you can still enjoy a wide variety of delicious food, from Vietnamese spring rolls to Hungarian lángos and Viennese sausages, provided by local restaurants that set up stalls outside their establishments. Together with live concerts and a children's flea market, the Neubaugassen flea market is a highlight for the whole family.
