This is a lovely market in the centre of Munich which has a wide range of stalls including fish, meat, vegetables, plants, honey etc. There is even a small beer garden in the centre. The market is also surrounded by cafes and restaurants and is a great place to just wander around, people watch and buy some produce.

We visited Munich in late December 2014. The Viktualiemarket had amazing selection of fish, meats, olives, veggies, cheeses, and Bratwurst. We had 2 of the best Bratwurst and beers one can imagine.

If you want it, they have it here fresh off the farm. Meats, vegetables, cheese, fruit, fish; you name it. All of it reasonably priced in one of the best outdoor markets in the world. It is a must for anyone who enjoys food or who has ever considered enjoying food. A visit here is worth the time to shop... More

It's fun to go to a market that locals go to as much as tourists. Lots of meats and cheeses and flowers. For Christmas they have sprinkled in some seasonal items as well. They had even decorated the Maypole. It's a great place to wander and people watch.

The market is close by to Marienplatz. You can find everything here from cheese, meats, fruit and vegetables, flowers, deli produce and German specialities. There are many places to eat in the market and the surrounding streets. There was a particularly good chocolate shop, and soup kitchen too. Festive atmosphere in December. Perfect place to go for buying ingredients for... More

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
