LINZ. With 45 stores and 130 feeders, one of Austria’s largest markets is celebrating an anniversary this year.

The actual birthday of the Südbahnhofmarkt is in December, and there are two days to choose from. The first market day was held on December 5th, 1949, but the market only officially opened a few days later on December 14th. A lot has changed since then. Every new booth operator leaves his mark on the market. According to city councilor Doris Lang-Mayerhofer (VP), the secret of success is the industry mix, the mixture of retail, crafts and gastronomy.

The traditional market is also the most modern in Linz. Since 2023, visitors have been able to use an app to find out whether the individual booths are currently open or which suppliers are currently advertising their goods. According to the responsible department head, Theresa Gillhofer, the app has been downloaded 5,000 times so far. A digital guidance system helps customers orientate themselves and goods ordered online can be picked up at a pickup station.

Events in the anniversary year

The series of events for the 75th has been running since the beginning of the year, such as the carnival campaign with the Ebelsberg carnival guild and “Remmi Demmi am Südi”, and the Easter bunny was also there. This is followed by the Mother’s Day campaign, the family afternoon on June 7th, the spring market and the children’s flea market every Friday during the summer holidays. Other activities include Autumn at the Market, Old Fruit Day, Agriculture Day with the seminar farmers and Martini at the Market with pony rides. Every Saturday in Advent, the Advent matinee with a brass band invites you to the market. On the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Südbahnhofmarkt, Santa Claus is coming and there is the popular truffle market. “We want to celebrate the anniversary with many smaller events throughout the year,” explains Lang-Mayerhofer. Nevertheless, there will be an official ceremony, but it still has to be planned. Likely time: end of August/beginning of September

Silvia cooks at the Südbahnhofmarkt

On the occasion of the anniversary, presenter Silvia Schneider recorded an episode of her ORF cooking show “Silvia cooks” at the Südbahnhofmarkt and was also supported by students from the Körnergymnasium. Schneider grew up in the Franckviertel and still has many fond childhood memories of the Südbahnhof market, which she usually visited with her grandmother. Later, as a student at Khevenhüllergymnasium, she often skipped school and spent her time at the “Südi”.

FPÖ detects “loss of visitors”

In addition to the celebrations, the Linz FPÖ also calls for a critical look. In view of the “obvious decline in visitors” on weekdays, local councilor Ute Klitsch is calling for those responsible to rethink things. The market app is also not really accepted by either suppliers or visitors, says Klitsch.
