The Viktualienmarkt (food market) is located since 1807 on this site. Over the past 200 years, it has developed into one of the city's biggest attractions. The location, just off Marienplatz, is perfect for attracting locals and tourists alike to its array of fruits, vegetables, flowers, all kinds of meats and cheeses and much more. There are some stands to get some tasty soups and snacks in typical Bavarian style. The whole place revolves around a beer garden that is marked by a traditional maypole with its characteristic blue and white stripes.

You'll also find a number of fountains in the area that commemorate local folk entertainers such as the comedian Karl Valentin and his sidekick Liesl Karlstadt.

A stroll around the colourful stalls will offer you always new interesting photo motives.

Opening hours:
Most stalls and shops are open during the official opening hours (Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.); many stalls close at 6 p.m.
On Sundays and holidays the market is closed.
