This is a great place to look around and to buy fresh produce. We found the fruit to be of excellent quality and reasonably priced. However when we decided to try a casual dinner of beer and sausage our experience was that it was overpriced and rather ordinary. There is much better quality and value to be had in the... More

This place is huge! A few restaurants and many permanent shops. Many of the shops sell their food items to take home (meat, cheese, sausage, etc.), to eat on the go, or to eat there (these items they sell but cooked). I especially like the beer vendor, which has one brand of beer only - today it was Spaten, tomorrow... More

Want a taste of Bavarian beer, and food, well you can get it all here to cater for virtually every taste, budget and preference. Maybe a bit sanitised for the tourists but it is friendly, safe and cheap and a quiet sit, drink and eat under the chestnuts with the sun shining is a great place for the footsore tripper... More

Just the right place for brunching - you buy your food and the drinks at self service booths - find a place to sit down - eat and drink - within 30 mins. you will find yourself speaking to the local people and after a while you will just feel like being in heaven. if not try another ´´mass``

Fresh fruits, bakery, flowers, vegetables and more can be found in this lovely market. For people from Western countries it might not be too interesting. But for us from Asia, it is really interesting to see how the market works in a western country. Indeed you can enjoy a beer in the market, after all you are in Munich...

An old market with the best food Bavaria offers - including all the fresh imports from Italy (not far) and other places. Expensive, but great quality. One of my favorite spots in Munich.

Viktualienmarkt is a wonderful open-air market in the middle of Munich. It is conveniently located within walking distance of Marienplatz. All of the food and beverages there were absolutely delicious. Stock up on the different types of mustards and give them away as gifts when you come back home. A definite must-see during your trip to Munchen.

Since this was #1 in the list, I expected it to be touristy. It was.. but I was also pleasantly surprised at how many locals were here as well. You need to come with an empty stomach. There's so much food! It's a feast for the stomach and the eyes!

Food is cheap and great to eat beer is cheap. Nice atmosphere and easy to meet new people. Food in the markets is fresh the vendors are friendly. Well worth 2-3 hours to visit walk around and have a beer.
