Flea Market in Vienna: the Flohmarkt am Naschmarkt

Vienna (Austria) 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 Austrian 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 am Naschmarkt is the place where you want to go.

The Naschmarkt

Arguably the most popular market in Vienna, the Naschmarkt is among the oldest markets in the city, and covers a huge area while offering almost everything that you can think of. 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 jewelry etc.


The Flohmarkt am Naschmarkt (Vienna’s flea market)

Located just adjacent to the Naschmarkt, Vienna’s Flohmarkt (the german word for “flea market”) is Vienna’s largest flea market and one of the best flea markets in Europe.  Surrounded by magnificent Art Nouveau buildings, this flea market 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 Naschmarkt 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… Non-professional vendors can also offer objects for sale, too, and there is a large variety of things sold at the “Flohmarkt am Naschmarkt”: 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.

    Is that the best quality market? Are there any high end antique markets in Vienna? I don’t want to have ‘fun’ all day by looking at other people’s junk.

    • Vienna’s Naschmarkt flohmarkt is the best flea market-related place you will find in Vienna (http://www.fleamapket.com/location/vienna/). Of course, it’s a bit touristy and many items might be overpriced for what they’re worth, but still, it’s the top of its kind in terms of variety and quality (there are other flea markets in Vienna, but not as big or of lower quality). If you’re interested in more high-end antique in Vienna, I can only recommend you to go to the Dorotheergasse and nearby streets where is located Vienna’s antiques district. Expect though to end up with a shopping basket neighboring the thousand euros.

      If you go to the Dorotheum auction house (Dorotheergasse 17), make sure to go up to the last floor of the building, where items that did not sale at auctions, are available on direct sales. Items are usually of great quality and sell for a more than affordable price. You can find everything ranging from Militaria to furniture, deco items, figures, paintings, cameras, etc. The highlight of an antiques/flea market trip toVienna!
