    The Viktualienmarkt

    If you are hungry for something they are sure to offer it here at the Viktualienmarkt.

    A stones throw away from Marienplatz is Munich's Viktualienmarkt--an outdoor bazaar of all kinds of food and drink. You will find everything from apples to zucchini here!

    Munichs famous market

    The "Viktualienmarkt", is a huge outdoor market selling everything from exotic to local fruits and vegetables, fish, meat (including horse and pony), flowers, and more. You will find fruits here that you won't find else where so it is a good place to buy.

    Potaoes someone???

    ...you should eat a Weisswurst with that sweet mustard here at the Viktualienmarkt. It's is said, that they are the best before 11 a.m.
    I like this place in Munich, it still has the flair of a market at some corners. If you aren't into shopping, you also can sit down for an early beer and a "Brotzeit", a snack.

    May ploe.

    In the centre of the market place is a typical Bayerische May pole. Most of the towns and villages have these in the village centre. The images on the pole I do believe depict whtas going on in the town or village.

    Viktualienmarkt is near the site where the founding fathers erected the first benedictine settlement in the year 1000. It is arranged like a village with solid little food stands, 6 fountains and the mandatory maypole. An impressive selection of exotic fruit and vegetables, cheeses, olives, sausages and meats on outdoor carts. There is also a cute little beer garden.

    Certainly a colourful area on a nice fine day (which wasn't the day I took this photo).

  • The Oldest Market in the World

    by Britta Written Aug 15, 2003

    To go from Peterkirche to the Viktualienmarkt, face the from of the church, the go straight around the building, keep going straight, and when you hit an open space filled with tents and small buildings and people, you are in the V market. This is the oldest market in the world, having started in Marienplatz, but then was moved in 1807 to this location. Walk around, take it all in. Buy if you want. This is the greatest place to have lunch, but don't buy at the stands, look at all the butcher shops lining one of the streets that borders the market, and go in there and ask for a sandwich. It's a cheap way to eat, about $5 for a sandwich and a drink. If you want to sit, take your meal outside and sit on the curb. Next go to the Frauenkirche, which is on my next tip.

    This market square was founded in 1807 and has developed into one of Munich's biggest markets.
    Owners of the stalls present their products in a very decorative way, so that you involuntarily stop right in front of each one and just look at the food.

    On this lively market, where they sell fruits, vegetables, meat, bread, cheese, everything, you can taste not only food and drinks, but also some of the "real" Munich atmosphere. Of course there's also a Biergarten!
    It's simply a great place!

    Viktualienmarkt

    Viktualienmarkt is the city's main marketplace for the last two hundred years. Every day (except Sunday) you can buy delicious-looking fruit and vegetables, all kinds of cheeses, meats and other foodstuffs. Though not cheap, the quality is excellent. Right in the middle is a small beer garden.

    Viktualienmarkt. The biggest market for fruits and vegetables. It has a long tradition and a special flair.
    You can get very fresh fruits, but also beautiful flowers, meat and different gifts, mostly handmade, and some of them are typical for munich.

    Lots of stands, mainly dedicated to food and beverages. White sausages and biers are the stars.

    Great atmosphere.
