Viktualienmarkt in Munich

Munich things to do, Munich things to do, Munich, Germany,

The central market in Munich, Viktualienmarkt, is showcasing a little schmidgen of the world. Think big, bold, bright colours and overpowering, inviting scents. Lavender, pine needles and oranges. I love those fresh smells, don’t you?

The market is also full of loads of vibrant tastes. You can literally eat your way round the world from the comfort of Munich. Start with Italian pasta and French cheeses.

Then try a few olives from the Mediterranean.

How about some fresh seafood? Lobsters as long as your arm and crabs bigger than your head.

If you’re not a fan of seafood, you can’t go wrong with traditional German bratwurst (sausages).

Don’t forget the chillis.

Wash it all down with some traditional schnapps in the ever cute miniature bottles.

When you’re finished stuffing your face, hit the creative stalls for some scented decorations.

Or perhaps a wicker basket to carry some purchases home…

And feel free to wear whatever you like regardless of the seasons (it was late autumn), just like this young man.

This central market is a great stop if you’re visiting Munich and I’d highly recommend you allow a good hour or two, or three if you want to squeeze in another stein.

It’s really easy to find as it is right in the centre of Munich, on a square between Heiliggeist-Kirche and Frauenstraße.

You can use public transport S-Bahn lines 1-8, U3 or U6, or Bus 52 to Marienplatz, then walk towards Tal and turn right behind St. Peter’s church.

The general opening and closing times are Monday to Friday 10am – 6pm, and Saturday 10am – 3pm.

    Great photos of a place I truly enjoyed! Loved having a brat and a beer at the biergarten there.

    Hi! Thanks so much for checking out my blog post and for your lovely comment. I could quite happily be transported back there this very second for a delicious beer. Did you get a chance to check out any of the other drinking spots in Munich?

    Awwww thanks so much. Lately I seem to be using my Iphone so much more than my actual normal camera! Glad the post urged you to escape. Hope you’re day wasn’t too bad, even if it was at a desk :)
