Naschmarkt, Vienna’s best-known market, has been around since the 16th century, and has come a very long way since its days of mainly selling milk bottles. It has around 120 market stands and restaurants with an amazing variety of choices, as well as visitors.
During the week, the different parts of the market begin opening at around 6AM and close at around 7:30PM (restaurants and cafes will stay open later, Saturdays shops close earlier, and the market is closed on Sundays). The market is trendy for visitors of all ages and types.
Some of Naschmarkt ‘s great choices of food include the organic delicacies of Tewa, the Israeli-Oriental delights of Neni, and the Turkish cuisine of Orient & Occidental. There are amazing fish restaurants, including Fischviertel, Nautilus, and the ever-famous Umar, considered by many to be the best fish restaurant in all of Vienna. There are also incredible pizza places, Indian restaurants, and so much more impressive variety.
There are endless items you can purchase, including fruits, vegetables, international spices and delicacies from just about every country. Everything from the sights, sounds and aromas of the market are incredibly enticing. And there's free Wi-Fi too! The areas surrounding Naschmarkt are also filled with incredible shops, restaurants and cafes.
On Saturdays, Naschmarkt is especially bustling due to the flea market. To make the experience even livelier, DJs provide entertainment on the weekends.
In the summer, Naschmarkt is the perfect place to spend your day just eating, drinking, and watching the enormous variety of people pass by.
