Viktualienmarkt – No 6 of Top Ten Things to See and Do – The Best of Munich

The countdown continues, following Odeonsplatz coming is at #7, next up is…

#6. Stroll the Viktualienmarkt:

The Viktualienmarkt is a great stop en route or post a visit to the Marienplatz.

Warning: it is absurdly expensive.

Not interested in dipping into your life savings for a loaf of bread? Don’t buy anything!

Just stroll between booths and gaze at the cheeses, crafts, fruits and vegetables offered by the many a merchant welcoming you to their stalls and handing out samples that will make it really hard not to empty the pockets, or the wallet.

Take in the little statues that can be spotted throughout the market,  and sip from the free fountains gushing with clean water straight from the alps.

And if you’re tummy starts to rumble, try a Leberkäse, taken literally it means “liver cheese” but there’s nothing livery or cheesy about it.

Leberkäse is like the fast food of Munich and can be found just about anywhere, including the airport, the train station and, the Viktualienmarkt. Served on a bun with mustard (optional), it’s akin to North American meatloaf and is a great inexpensive way to cure the cravings when hunger strikes.
