How to get to Naschmarkt
From the Airport
The cheapest way is by the ordinary railway or "S-Bahn", you take a train headed
for Floridsdorf, which leaves every 30 minutes until you reach the Wien-Mitte
station. From there change to the U-Bahn or underground railway, the
metro, and take the U4 line to Karlsplatz which is right at the end of the
Naschmarkt. If you need the other end of Naschmarkt you may choose the
Kettenbrückengasse Station which has entrance right in the carpark of the
market. Each person will need a Vienna Zone 100 ticket as well as a VOR
ticket for a total of 3.60 euro.
Most convenient way of course is by taxi. The fees are by negotiation or
by a flat rate and are not recorded on a meter. For a small taxi the
prices should be less than 30 Euros.
The other great Market of Vienna is the "Coal market",
though of course these days little relating to Coal is sold
there, but rather this is the place to find Cartier, Giorgio
Armani, Tiffany & Co. and Louis Vuitton with the green dome
of Hofburg in the distance overlooking Michaelerplatz.
Iit is an easy 15 minute walk from Kohlmark to Naschmarkt
through interesting streets.
First face towards Michaelerplatz, you can see the green
dome of Hofburg to guide you here, and walk into the platz
which is roughly round. Go to the right and walk under
the archway on Reitschulgasse and continue straight on ,
walking along the edge of the next square. Until you go
through the narrow street and out beyond into
Augustinerstrasse with it's small green park. Stay to the
right here walking beside the cafe's and the Albertina
entrance with it's modern overhanging roof, stay on the
street level and do not go up the stairs.
Continue onto Opengasse which is a wide main road with
much traffic. Continue on for 3 blocks when you will see the
green Karlsplatz trees on your right but continue onwards on
the left of Friedrichstrasse pas the gold domed Succession
on your right, then across the road ahead and to left you
can see the beginning of the Nascmarkt.
