Vienna’s Naschmarkt

Anything your little taste-buds could crave or covet can be found here. Open since the 16th century, this is the largest open air market in Vienna, stretching 1.5 kilometers (about 1 mile) in length. From breads, to fancy delectable pastries, sausages, chocolates, fish, cheeses, fruit, vegetables, and many many cafes, this is a must experience. Our son, James, worked as a Cheese Steward for a couple of years and remarked that he could only identify about 50% of the cheeses he was looking at. He was humbled and intrigued all at the same time.

We were kicking ourselves. Had we visited here on our first day we could have provisioned ourselves in style for the Czech Republic. Unfortunately we came on the last day and could only drool. We did what we could… bought tidbits of our favorite things, brought them back to the hotel room and, on our last night there, had a fabulous picnic on the the bed! Even if you are not a foodie, go there, you will be beguiled. Here are some of the photos we took. Cheers! Beware of crackers in the bed….
