Viktualienmarkt, Munich

4.6
#1 of 869 in Shopping in Germany
Wander through the buzzing stalls of Viktualienmarkt, Munich's largest outdoor market. Originally started as a farmer's market in the early 19th century, the market has become a popular delicatessen. You can find gourmet goods and locally made products, as well as an array of fresh meats and produce. Pick up a loaf of fresh, oven-baked bread and a refreshing, fresh-squeezed juice. Walk around to admire the abundance of hand-made Bavarian goods. Stop by the beer garden if you'd like a typical meal of German sausages.

  • Loved our visit here with showcasing foods flowers and holiday ornaments. We were here in the evening and it was bustling with activity.  more »
  • The market and biergarten are open and trade does not open on Sundays. If it's raining, it won't be the best ride option. It is adjacent to Marienplatz, to the southeast and easy walking access. The nearest U and S-Bahn station is Marienplatz. It has existed since 1807. There are bakerys (Bäckerei), butchers(Fleisch Metzgerei), cold cuts (Feinkost), chocolate shop, delicatéssen and queijarias. There are fruit and vegetable stalls. The quality standard is European. The cheeses are German, French, Italian and Spanish. The sausages too. Italian and Spanish preserves. Souvenir shops. Fishmongers are further ahead of Nordsee. They serve seafood according to the menu. Eataly is nearby and Casa Italia in Westenriederstrasse are great options for buying Italian products. Biergarten is democratic and simply share the free space with other people. Great for tasting the delicacies purchased at the stalls or kiosks. Mixed germans and foreigners. There are tables reserved for restaurant guests. We shared our table with a Russian couple. Choose your beer at the kiosk (hacker-pschorr kellerbier,dunkel and paulaner) were available, pay in the act and take the mugs to the table. If I'm not mistaken, the brewery option changes every six weeks. I recommend for those who enjoy sightseeing through gastronomic attractions.

  • At the foot of Marien Platz you find the market, on Saturday lunchtime it was packed and impossible to be able to eat anything, except by making endless queues. In fact, there are not many of the market stalls left. There are kiosks to eat, if you can, and some masonry structures that sell food from wines, to cheeses to sausages. and some classic market bench. Every now and then a statue of some of the Monaco characters of bygone times emerges. In the afternoon, however, there are a lot of people who drink, always around places to eat and drink. Finally a weekday morning, you can move quietly around the market and appreciate it more, however it deserves.
