Vienna Antique Market & Fair

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.

Antikmarkt this way please…

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.

Crystal glasses? My Dad like them!

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…).

  • Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. With thanks

  • The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  • After examine a couple of of the weblog posts on your website now, and I actually like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website record and will be checking again soon. Pls check out my website online as effectively and let me know what you think.
