Great market, centrally located close to Marienplatz. It was a chilly day when we visited and we stopped at the Suppe Kuche stand: hot soups served with hearty breads...for approximately five euros one could get a large bowl of delicious warm soup. I had a carrot-ginger soup topped with cream that was incredibly tasty, and my hubby had the ever... More

This market in the city centre provides local food on every day (except sundays and holidays) of the week. You will definitely find something you like there. The only downside is, that almost everything is kind of pricey, but the quality is really good.

It's a must for me to visit this fresh food market in the heart of the city. I just love the easy going atmosphere, to wander from stand to stand, and to enjoy a fresh 'Gurke from Fass'. There are literally dozen's of places to taste the local and a view 'close by' cuisines either directly at the market or... More

This is a wonderful food market. Everything looks beautiful and delicious. It made me wish that my hotel room had a kitchen. If you like looking at high quality food even if not sourcing ingredients for meal preparation spend some time here.

I liked this food-centered market. There's a great spot to sit down and eat, and an excellent looking fish monger (if you're looking to purchase fish). As neither my husband or I were hungry, we wandered, admiring the fish, the mushrooms, the tiny pineapples, and the olive stands. We couldn't leave without enjoying something however, so we each purchased a... More

Every time we visited Munich in the past, we also went to the Victualienmarkt for its flair, fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, cheeses, crisp rolls, pretzels, cakes etc. and looking at the iconic statues of Munich entertainers of the past. Karl Valentin, Liesl Karatadt, Ida Schumacher among others are unforgotten popular figures in Munich/Bavaria. This time we had no sunshine,... More

A large outdoor market selling fruits, vegetables, meats, flowers, crafts and more. cafes dotted around serve a variety of snacks and drinks with some offering marquis style shelter from the weather. Worth a stroll and browse. Al on the flat/cobles so suitable for prams and wheelchairs. A great stop off for coffee and cake! (or beer and pretzel!)

There is a niceness about the Viktualienmarkt. It is interesting to walk around the stalls and perhaps buy the odd thing. it is where the locals shop and kind of interesting but not a major tourist draw in my opinion.

It is fun to walk the busy market right in the heart of the Old Town. It’s close to the area where antiques shops offer old beer steins. The market itself is a show. Dogs and shoppers mingle, stopping for a beer or a bite to eat. It is so crowded you have to watch out for pickpockets. We enjoyed... More

This is where the locals go to shop. You can easily spend an hour or two just perusing the many stalls. Most sell some sort of food, but you can get everything from flowers to souvenirs. Be sure to be here when it is time to eat. Whether you sit down at one of the open or enclosed eateries, or... More
