Summer Walks: The Neuer Markt In Vienna, Austria

The Neuer Markt (New Market), one of the oldest squares in Vienna, is located west of the Karntner street (Kärntner Straße). During the Second World War, the square was heavily damaged. Many buildings were lost and replaced by modern ones.

The most famous building on the Neuer Markt is the Capuchin Church  (Kapuzinerkirche). Below it is the resting place of the Habsburgs in the Capuchin Crypt. Nearby you’ll find the Ambassador Hotel and the house built for the Gebrüder Wild, a former traditional delicacy shop built in the style of the German Renaissance with a facade of the “Old German period”. Also check out the Mayseder house, one of the oldest houses on the square, and the premises of the traditional jeweler AE Köchert.
