Markets in Munich


There are many stalls and small markets scattered throughout the city that expats will undoubtedly stumble upon while getting acquainted with Munich’s streets and alleyways.

Once a farmers' market for local town folk, Viktualienmarkt is now one of Bavaria's most famous markets and draws crowds from all over Europe. Established in 1807 just behind St. Peter's Church in the city centre, it has grown to cover an area of 22,000 square metres and offers a colourful selection of exotic fresh food and delicatessen rarely found in other parts of the region. Prepare yourself for a sensory overload as you probe 140 stalls displaying colourful bouquets of flowers, fresh organic fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, sausages, honey, jam, herbs, spices, cheeses, wines and more!

Core trading hours are between 10am and 6pm from Monday to Friday; and 10am to 3pm on Saturdays.

Located between Arcisstrasse, Elisabethstrasse and Nordendstrasse, Elisabethmarkt offers a similar range of products to that of Viktualienmarkt, with one addition being home-made beer. Although significantly smaller, its 24 stalls are of equal charm and well worth a browse.

Trading hours are between 10am and 6pm from Monday to Friday; and 10am to 6pm on Saturdays.
