Flohmarkt am Naschmarkt

The Flohmarkt am Naschmarkt is Vienna’s largest flea market and one of the best flea markets in Europe, welcoming each week 400 vendors and 15,000 visitors

Vienna has various flea markets and one impressive “antiques” district (1st district/bezirk) where antique dealers and Vienna’s auction house, the Dorotheum, are located . However, if you’re more looking forward to finding a mind boggling range of antique stuff right from local food items to old furniture to trinkets of jewellery and what not at throw away prices at these flea markets in Vienna, Vienna’s flea market & Naschmarkt is the place where you want to go.

Arguably the most popular market in Vienna, the Naschmarkt is among the oldest flea market in the city, and covers a huge area while offering almost everything that you can think of, rain or shine. If you are interested in diverse international food items, then head to this flea market. You can find fresh Asian shrimps, Italian cheese, spices, olives and all sorts of fruits. The great part is that none of these will burn a hole in your pocket. Apart from food, you can also get old furniture, carpets, postcards from the times of war, Indian jewellery etc.

Located just adjacent to the Naschmarkt, Vienna Flohmarkt (the german word for “flea market”) is Vienna’s largest flea market and one of the best flea markets in Europe (it welcomes up to 15,000 visitors on a sunny day). Surrounded by magnificent Art Nouveau buildings, it stretches for several blocks of stands hawking books, clothes, records, ancient electrical goods, old postcards, ornaments, carpets and many more, including what many would consider junk.

The flea market has space for 400 exhibitors, half of which are reserved for Vienna’s antique dealers and is a great attraction for lovers of everything old and bizarre. Individuals can offer objects for sale, too, and there is a large variety of things sold: high-quality collector’s items and furniture in need of minor restoration work as well as books, second-hand clothes, curiosities and junk.

This is no wonder why the true multicultural atmosphere of Vienna’s flea markets attracts in equal proportions flea market enthusiasts, treasure hunters and tourists from all around the world.

  1. Immer wieder einen Besucht wert. Ein sehr großer Flohmarkt mit allen möglichen Zeugs. Die Preise sind wegen der Naschmarkt-Touristen wohl etwas teurer als auf anderen Flohmärkten, aber trotzdem macht es hin und wieder Spaß, sich den alten Krempel durchzuschauen.

  2. Unlike some flea markets which feel more like junky garage sales, this one is packed with antiques and cool retro oddities. That said, I wasn’t really in the market to buy anything I saw and was only really tempted by one book. The price the vendor quoted was so much more than I would have spent that I didn’t bother to haggle with him. Like many flea markets, there were mostly small decorative items, books, artwork, some new junky stuff, but definitely enough quality old curiosities to make for a great hour or so of wandering. It was packed on Easter weekend and I was knocked around a bit trying to make my way in the crowd, but that was part of the fun of it for me. The flea market started where the Naschmarkt ends so you could continue through to shop and eat at the vendor stalls there.

  3. This is Vienna’s largest flea market, open on Saturday mornings. A combination of amateur hawkers, professional traders, peddlers and anyone with something to sell gather here. Although some antiques and rare books can be found, most is bric-à-brac and assorted 2nd hand items.

    It is always quite crowded and there is very little parking, so try using public transport to get there (subway station on the U4 line: Kettenbrückengasse). The adjacent Naschmarkt is a good place to grab a coffee ahead of your visit, or a cold beer after. Pickpockets aren’t a major issue in Vienna, but this is the place where you might want to keep an eye on your handbag or wallet.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
