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.

There wasn't anything interesting for me while I was there. Most of the stalls sold fruits and light snacks and there is a beer garden in the viktualienmarkt, but that's mostly it.

We spent half a day here, that's how big it is. Many of my friends ate traditional German sausages, but being vegetarian, I had no problem finding what to eat. I bought some fruits and complemented them with some nuts I had in my bag (you have to be prepared). All the fruits were fresh and delicious. The vendors we... More

Great variety of places to buy food and beverage, and people-watching heaven. Only issue was that is is crowded with people, and offers very few places to sit. Also, you may need a well-trained bladder.

An open market in the city center. You can eat and drink a beer with a lot of people. Of course you can buy tipical german products and also products coming from other countries. Pay attention that in sunday the 90 % of shops are closed

Everything looked so good I wanted to try it all. From a warm pretzel in a bakery to some antipasti in an Italian joint, a great muesli shop, the usual sausage bun and a delicious organic ice cream stand with just a few flavors - try the basil and saffron ice cream if they have it that day. Some reasonably... More

we visited this market between breakfast and lunch and we really didn't eat or drink anything but alone being there was an attraction without even trying anything. It is really fascinating. I've heard so much about this market and nothing was exaggerated, I can imagine that one can drink and eat like a king here.

This is a terrific outdoor market that has a bit of everything from which to choose: fresh squeezed juices, handmade cheeses, fish, bread, sausage, a small biergarten, and delicatessens. The butcher shop is a treat all by itself, even if you are just there to look around. Near the north end of the market there is whole in the wall... More

We sat opposite the fountain and enjoyed the scene. We had the best breakfast: natural yoghurt with muesli, honey and lots of fresh fruit piled on top, berries galore. It was heavenly.

Where do I begin? There's food. There are gifts. It's just fantastic. As someone who really enjoys cooking, I was quite jealous that Munich has such a diverse market. From wild mushrooms picked that morning to traditional Bavarian sausages, you can find pretty much anything here. This market definitely ignited my gourmet heart.
