The beer garden is a great place to mingle with ordinary Münchners. They have excellent Bavarian food and the beer is just exquisite

Even if you're not planning on doing any shopping, it's worth visiting and checking local produce. It's a typical outdoor market but it's close to other Munich sights so pass by, it's quite nice

It's a great place to visit. So much to see, taste and smell. Loved the colours, beautiful decorations and of course, all the food that put us on Xmas spirit. I can imagine it's even better in summer when there's outdoor seats.

Don't miss walking around the Viktualienmarkt if you're visiting Munich. Its just a few paces from the Marienplatz and many of the city-centre attractions. I suspect the market is even better in the Spring and Summer months when the stalls when some of the stalls will cater for those who want to sit outside with a drink and watch the... More

The Viktualienmarkt is Munich's bustling local outdoor market and is located in the heart of the city’s old town. It is Munich’s premier place to shop for fresh produce, dairy, bread, and Bavarian specialties. The prices are little on the high side, but the products that you can purchase are worth it! You could spend a large portion of the... More

This is a gorgeous area, full of individual stalls, all selling very different wares. There are fresh vegetables/fruit. You can get coffee, pastry, wine, meat, soap, jam, organic goods, tea...you name it. I went three different times during my week to Munich, just to take it all in. Be sure to check out the Maypole which tells a story, and... More

The market offers a variety of food and drink including some exotic fruits, local breads, beers, cheese and so on. I must say I was a bit disappointed with the size of the market and it was just anther fresh food market. nothing special really.

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
