Viktualienmarkt – an institution in Munich
Nowhere else in Munich you will find a bigger variety of fresh food and specialities of best quality. Local as well as tropical fruit and vegetables sold by „Exoten Müller“, meat, poultry and venison from „Petersbergl“, oven-fresh bread at „Bäckerliesl“, fish, cheese, exotic herbs and spices – and so much more.

With a history that lasts more than 200 years, with an area of 22.000 square meters and 140 traders, the market located between the churches of „Alter Peter“ and „Heiliggeistkirche“ and the Italian market at Schrannenhalle has a lot to tell.
