    Great area to grab a beer and some food! Just a reminder that on Sunday’s the market stalls are not really open just the beer stall and some food stalls around it. As long as you buy a beer you can sit at the tables and even bring your own picnic. The stall rotates between the original breweries. The day we were there hey were selling Paulaner. It was nice to sit under the trees and take a touring break. The May Pole is very close and you can see it from the tables.

    When you're visiting Munich, this is not to be missed. A big, outdoor market selling everything from spices to flowers to local delicacies with a large, picnic-table-style seating area beneath mature trees. Locals mix with tourists over beer and traditional Bavarian fare. A great place to stop for a break or lunch and take in Munich at its best.

    Fantastic open market. They have a little bit of everything - seafood, gelato, fresh produce, beer, wine, sausages and more. It was crowded with plenty of people out enjoying the weather and the atmosphere. You can have an entire meal here or grab a quick snack or something to make at home for later. It is a great spot to relax at while enjoying Bavarian food and drinks.

    Nice place to visit with a lot of activity. Sometimes it is really too busy but it is not difficult to be able to buy any products and people are very nice. Good products. A bit pricy. Closed in Sunday's (except the restaurants)

    Amazing market! Numerous stalls with a lot of variety. This market does not suffer from many stalls selling the same item. If something is in season you will see it at many stalls, but otherwise everyone is offering different items. Tea, coffee, fruit, vegetables, meat, beer, bread, etc. If you're up early it is very nice to walk through the market before the crowds. You get to chat with the vendors and try samples before thei attention needs to go to the masses! Highly recommend a walk here.

    Great place to grab lunch and a beer. It was pretty busy with both tourists and locals. Prices are reasonable and the food/drinks were pretty good. The shade from the trees provided great shade from the hot summer heat. Great way to see the true culture of Munich. The other part of the victuals market contained craft and flower shops. You can get some fun souveniers that aren't so touristy, or admire the fresh flowers in the boutiques. They smelled really nice.

    Huge variety of delicious local food as well as a great open air market. A really cool place to take in some local flavor! Possible downside, not much for seating at a lot of the walk up food vendors, and restrooms are scarce.

    Viktualienmarkt – Munich – Germany We just loved this daily food market! We were not sure how to pronounce Viktualienmarkt, but it was not difficult to get there since is really center located in Munich and it’s just a fun place to stay for few hours, have some food and drinks with lots of people around! The farmer’s market that is really popular for gourmets has a bit of everything you can imagine. You will find cheese, fruits, flowers, good wine, sausages, traditional German food, non traditional German food and, of course, lots of beer. We arrived there after a day walking around the historic old town then we had a kind of later lunch or earlier dinner and it was surprising really affordable since it’s also a place that has lots of tourists. We loved the ambience, the building around are really charming, people were having lots of fun and we could enjoy a great time with a good beer getting a sit in one of the tables around the restaurants. We just wish to have another day to go back there, but our schedule was really overbooked until our next destination. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4 Recommend: Totally, great food and beer for a good price

    A very typical market full of colours and flavours. There are a lot of small places to have a beer or a nice meal for good prices. As any other fine market anywhere in the world, there are lots of locals shopping or just having a beer, so be patient during your visit.

    Most the stalls are selling the same stuff, it wasn't that many there either. There is a fish/seafood place which has open place where you can order and eat at the counter. Don't go !!! Specially if you traveling from a country has good seafood! We ordered the Oysters, and fish burgers, they were not nice at all. We are from ireland and I have say to Ireland does have the best Oysters!! I have leaned that stick to pork or sausages while in Germany, they the do the best! Overall, this market is not attractive to tourists at all.
