This time I am very fortunate to visit Vienna, the capital city of Austria. I would like to share two antiquing experience in this beautiful city.
1. Vienna Antiques Market at the Naschmarkt
It is located at the famous Naschmarkt. The nearest metro station is Kettenbrückengasse.
If you have come from the food market, keep going until the end, and you will see the antique stalls.
The antique market is held every Saturday. Make sure you come early. Some dealers already packed/closed their stalls as early as 12:30pm.
It was in the middle of November and the weather was too cold. I think it was about 2 degree Celsius.
It is a mixture of antique and flea market, so you can find stalls that sell anything and everything.
2. Antiques Fair at the Ringstrassen-Galerien
Unlike the first antique market, which is an outdoor one, this second market is an indoor market.
This is an antique fair that is held twice a month – at the second and fourth Sunday of the month. The location is at a trendy gallery named Ringstrassen-Galerien. The nearest metro station is Karlsplatz.
I would say that you will find good quality antiques at the fair. The price is quite varied from one stall to the others, probably best to shop around and see all the stalls and then decide what you will buy.
So if you have a free Sunday, why not come and see this antiques fair! You will find some wonderful things which are local (made in Austria) and has historic value (rather than buying souvenirs for example…).
It is quite a big fair with stalls covered up two floors:
I got to have one item from this fair and I found a very cute ladies pocket watch. Click here for more details.
