Karmelitermarkt is one of the oldest market in Vienna. Located in a picturesque square, it's smaller and less crowded than popular Naschmarkt but it has at least as much to offer. Just a short distance from the Old Town, the area has recently filled with young and buzzing bistros and artists shops. On Friday and Saturday, local farmers sell fresh fruit and vegetables, home baked bread and genuine Viennese gastronomy's products.


An original souvenir for friends at home or a pretty memento for yourself: shopping is an essential part of any stay in Vienna. From the many colourful markets and shops filled with countless mouth-watering Viennese specialties to design boutiques and luxury shopping experiences: whatever is your budget you'll find a sweet gift to bring back with you.
