Great place to grab a beer or wine and enjoy it together with some sausages and cheese from the many stalls in the area, and enjoy them while sitting in one of the many benches with tables there while soaking in the atmosphere of the place. Would be great if each of the stalls have someone who can speak some... More

We travelled by train from Vienna, Austria to Munich, Germany; which is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria, on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, with a population of around 1.47 million. Before we visited the Dachau Concentration Camp, in Munich... More

I picked up great souvenirs here; fresh honey, jams, and Christmas ornaments. I also was able to buy fresh food to eat for lunch. There is food and beer a plenty and tons of tables to sit and rest your feet at for a while.

Lots of different stalls and shops to explore. Lovely atmosphere. Great place to sample and enjoy lots of local produce and food items. Grab a beer under the horse chestnut trees, a piece of cheese, and a few friends! Not to be missed. Visited in September 2013.

So many superlatives can describe Viktualienmarkt that the best thing to tell you is just make sure you visit when in Munich. From indulging your inner foodie, to buying spices, to some of Munich's best restaurants (Zwickl &Poseidon to name but 2) being right nearby Viktual is an awesome place. We spent hours here as well as in the indoor... More

The Viktualienmarkt had a beautiful atmosphere. It had a wide variety of goods- snacks, wine, beer, cheese, flowers, and crafts. Despite going through the market several times, I feel that I missed a good portion of what it has to offer.

A great place to buy traditional German staples. There was a nice variety of food and alcohol, along with some decor and Christmas items. It was great to take a stroll through, pick up some items for gifts and grab a bite to eat. The terraced area by the stalls was quite large and completely packed when I was there... More

No matter your preference, you can get delicious fruit, vegetables, meats, cheese, beer and more. Purchase and sit in the outdoor beer garden. Easy and fun. Prices seem good and fruit and veggies are very fresh. Great place to people watch. Very German ambiance.

An essential part of any trip to Munich, visit this atmospheric market whether you have five minutes or several hours to spend. Outdoors, but stalls under canopies if it rains. Many on the periphery sell hot snacks / food / beers - our favourite was the Suppenkuche (soup kitchen). We bought lots of things here - little sacks of spices... More

We visited the market on a cold, rainy, Wednesday in late October. We love going to markets so we didn't want to miss this and there were a lot of vendors set up selling meats, cheeses, honey, wine, as well as hand made crafts but to be honest the weather was just too brutal to enjoy it. However, at the... More
