My favorite spot in town: Viktualienmarkt
What is it?
Viktualienmarkt is our open-air food market in the middle of the city. The name comes from the Latin word victualia which means food. Today it is the largest open-air food market in Germany on 20,000 square meters with more than 110 booths. It is open every day except Sundays and holidays.
Why do I like this place so much?
Here you can get fresh regional and international food which you might not get at supermarkets spanning from a broad variation of potatoes, tomatoes, all kind of fruit to fresh mushrooms, truffles, deer and fish. There are also booths specialized in just one kind of product, like organic food or honey and honey products.
You can get little snacks and of course there is a big beer garden in the center where you can bring your own food and enjoy beer from the six big breweries in Munich.
Things to discover are sweet and sour pickles and how to eat them, pretzel and coffee for just 1,40 Euro, 8 wells with free drinking water, our last horse butcher and more.
I love to do my grocery shopping there meet the market sellers and enjoy the time.
My favorite restaurants:
- Augustiner Klosterwirt – Typical Bavarian food and beer from a wooden barrel
- TIAN – One Star Michelin Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant
- Herzog Bar – Great cocktails and fancy atmosphere
- Blue Spa Roof Terrace – Great drinks and cocktails with a great view over downtown in summer
