I haven't been there yet, and I need to admit that I did not know that such a "festival" takes place in Vienna's Augarten, but the programme sounds really worthwhile.
If you have sufficient time, then I would drop by!Edited: 4:10 am, August 11, 2018
I’ve gone every year for the past 10 years. The festival is a festival, with stages, music, play areas for kids, wine bars, beer halls and specialty food products. The Naschmarkt is a market - and a highly touristy one at that - no locals really go there anymore. It is year round and different from a festival that happens once a year. If you want to go to a better market, visit Karmelitermarkt on Saturday morning, as it is just around the corner from the festival.
And if you do so, then please return to this thread and tell us your experience & impression of it. Thanks
Will do, thank you!
Hello, We will also be in Vienna that first week in September, flying home on the evening of the 8th. I am trying to put together a plan for each day. The Karmelitermarkt looks great as does the Harvest Festival. Can anyone tell me if there is an entry fee for the festival? We are happy to pay, but I just want to make sure we keep enough cash available for the last day! These two look good for our last day as we don't need to leave our hotel until 16:45 (we are staying at Hotel Caroline in Gudrunstrasse). It looks easy to get there from our hotel using the U-Bahn. Thank you!
The festival is free.
Fabulous! Thank you! :)
