History of Naschmarkt

Geschichte des Naschmarkt

The history of Naschmarkt goes back to the 18th century. At that time there was already a farmer's market, the so-called "Aschenmarkt". The name was probably derived from the milk vessels made of ash wood, which were mainly sold there. Another possible explanation for the name could be the ash and rubbish dump that used to be here.

The current name is documented from 1820 and probably goes back to the sweets sold there. The market has officially been called Naschmarkt since 1905.

Today, Naschmarkt is the largest inner-city market with a length of around 5 kilometers and is visited by thousands of visitors every day.
