Vienna's aromatic Naschmarkt unfurls over 500m along Linke Wienzeile between the U4 stops of Kettenbrückengasse and Karlsplatz. The western (Kettengasse) end has all sorts of meats, fruit and vegetables (including exotic varieties), spices, wines, cheeses, olives, Indian and Middle Eastern specialities and fabulous kebab and felafel stands. In all, there are 123 fixed stalls, including a slew of sit-down restaurants.

Another 35 places are allocated for temporary stalls such as farmers' stands. The market peters out at the eastern end to stalls selling Indian fabrics, jewellery and trashy trinkets. An adjoining Flohmarkt (flea market) sets up on Saturdays.
