One of the best flea markets in Europe, this Vienna institution should not be missed. It’s tacked onto the southwestern end of the Naschmarkt on Saturdays, and half of Vienna seems to converge here, either flogging or pawing through tonnes of antiques, Altwaren (old wares) and just plain junk. It stretches for several blocks of stands hawking books, clothes, records, ancient electrical goods, old postcards, ornaments, carpets…you name it. It’s very atmospheric – more like the markets of Eastern Europe – with goods piled up in apparent chaos on the walkway. Try to get there early, as it gets more and more crammed as the morning wears on. Stallholders know the value of their goods (and the fact that this is a tourist attraction), so they’ll quote high. Haggle!
