My World Tuesday - Vienna's Naschmarkt

Vienna is a crazy city.

See and judge yourself.
Step down from Maria Hilferstraße to Naschmarkt.
See the flea market and the Jugendstil villas.
See city traffic at Gumpendorfer Straße and Naschmarkt's market stools.
See Che Guevara's flag next to the Austrian state flag.
And besides:
Find all the exotic treasures of the Orient close beside Spanish strawberries and Italian olives - and apples from Austria!

And a voracious little dog...

















My bad dog!

















The Naschmarkt has existed since the 16th century when mainly milkbottles were sold....

Read more about the Naschmarkt HERE (german) and HERE (english)!

Now I'm starving! Where on earth do the Strawberries come from when you're still in the wrap of winter? Maybe Australia hehe!

Maria said...

Yes, but don't forget the glass houses everywhere!

Titania said...

Ich habe den ganzen Spaziergang mitgemacht, es war wunderbar. Der Naschmarkt ist fantastic. Jetzt muss ich mal was "naschen." So ein schoenes Wort habe ich schon lange nicht mehr gehoert.

Judy said...

I love the colours in that photo of the strawberries and all!!!

Maria said...

Ja, naschen ist ein nettes Wort, wenn ich mal Lust auf etwas Süsses habe, nasche ich.
Aber eigentlich kommt die Bezeichnung "Naschmarkt" gar nicht vom Naschen, sondern von Asche, von einer Mülldeponie die früher auf diesem Gelände war, oder von den Milchkrügen, die am Milchmarkt dort verwendet wurden - war mir zu hoch...

Kessi said...

Danke, hab schon so viel vom "Naschmarkt" gehört, jetzt konnte ich auch mal sehen - das sieht total spannend aus dort und D'Ora findet das ja auch :)!! Sie ist ein aufgewecktes Mädchen :) und sehr interessiert wie ich finde! Du musst das fördern! :)

What a great virtual stroll through Vienna. And the dog that keeps popping up in front of the stalls is obviously looking for a tasty snack - is s/he yours?

waldviertelleben said...

mit diesen bildern hast du dich selbst übertroffen - super. und mit d´ora solltest du öfter auf den markt gehen - sie geniesst das offensichtlich.

shaker said...

Your dog seems to enjoy the market !

Leanne said...

Babooshka said...

I'm exhausted and hungry now after that whistle stop virtual tour of your crazy but wqonderful city.

Maria: Thanks for sharing all of the neat views from the market, wonderfully done.

Tricia said...

WoW! That's amazing photos! I have to ask, what's in the bins that your doggy is sniffing? It kinda looks like potatoes, but then again, it doesn't!

I love this post. Thanks for taking us to tour the farmer's market. Those bread are calling my name.

Sylvia K said...

What a fabulous tour!!! and I'm starving, too! Naschmarkt looks like a place I'd love to wander through! Thanks so much for a great post! Have a good week!

Great photos. Thanks for visiting my blog. Cheers, J Bar.

Maria, what a wonderful post! Your Vienna as always is so beautiful, with so much variety, but what imresses me most is that it is ileal for walking and that there are s few heavly overweight people there. Here if you go into town to the main pedestriam mall, most peopleare rolling tons of lard from overeating fast foods and watching TV.
Yhe Viennese can afford to indulge themselves at the Naschmarkt and coffee houses since they can walk it off. Here everyone drives everywhere.
Dora is such a discerning lady!

Oh, this isn't a crazy city afterall...I love that flea market, I always do. Good finds at good price, I hope. :)I love that fruit stand, mouthwatering!

Janie said...

The market looks like fun, with the fresh flowers and fresh bread and delicious veggies and fruits. Poor D'ora! You should feed her extra before she goes to market!
(Although if she's like Daisy, she's always hungry.)

Maria said...

Tricia, I think they are yam tubers!

Grammy said...

I enjoyed the tour of you world. I love all the detail and food. yum.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Beautiful and colorful city, now i am hungry

Jack and Joann said...

Oh, I sure did enjoy this romp thru Vienna. I can almost feel the cold air and smell the coffee brewing in Vienna's coffeehouses.

ayamlin said...

Hi maria!
Ah, I wanna walk around this market and eat something good.
I don't have the market like this in my town.
So when I go to Vienna, I wanna go there:)

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

It's diversity reminds me alot of London and it's a beautiful city too.

Small City Scenes said...

I think I love Vienna. Do you have a room available? MB

VALKYRIEN said...

Thank you so much for the walk in your city! There were som houses I almost could recognize from my own hometown (not Oslo), the houses in Jugend! The town is called Ålesund, and almost the whole city is Jugend. A beautiful city - and so are yours! And your dog is as most dogs; always looking for food! Have a nice day and week in your part of the world!

angela said...

What a fabulous tour round Vienna and what a bustling cosmopolitan city it seems..I love those flags.

antigoni said...

Great photos. You have a big market. Did you take your dog along as a taster? I think he would like some goodies over there.

Brenda said...

I love the markets in Europe and this market looks like a great one!

Catherine said...

Today, your world looks like mine, Maria. The flea market stalls are similar to ours, even the products !
What I prefer is the veggies and fruit market. So colored. Shopkeepers seem to be the same wherever we are. Except for the language.
I wonder how your dog can stay breathing in front of the spices stall like he does !
Nice world to share.

Wienermädel + Co said...

Euer Hund dürfte hungrig sein!
Schöner Bericht, wir lieben den Naschmarkt auch sehr.

Ces said...

Now if thse won't cheer you up, I don't know what will! It's a lovely city!

Barbara Martin said...

Wonderful photos. What kind of tubular root is D'Ora sniffing? Walking through a market is always invigorating.

Andreas said...

Hallo Maria !

Früher war ich sehr oft am Naschmarkt - Flohmarkt Schauen und ebenfalls mit der Kamera unterwegs.

Ich hab diesen sogar schon mehrmals besucht als ich noch in St. Pölten wohnte. Dann, vom 12. Bezirk aus.

Ja und jetzt, mit kleinen Kids und südlich von Wien zu Hause, ist es schwer, einen anderen Grund als meine Arbeit zu finden um Wien einen Besuch abzustatten.

Danke für deine schöne, farbenfrohe Bildreportage. Hat für mich einen Hauch von persönlicher Nostalgie.

Liebe Grüße,

Andreas
