Munich Travel Tip:
The Victuals Market and Schrannenhalle

The Victuals Market and Schrannenhalle
Maypole on Viktualienmarkt, Munich

The Victuals Market, only a few steps from the Marienplatz, is Munich's most popular open air market. Stalls not only offer the freshest fruits and vegetables in Munich, but traditional Bavarian Schweinshax'n and Speck, sea food, delicious cheeses from all over Europe, herbs, honey products, sushi and hand-made straw puppets. The Victuals Market is not only a place for buying and selling; the market also hosts a number of traditional and folkloric events, such as the colorful Fasching festivities and the masked dance of the market women on Shrove Tuesday. The market is open Monday - Saturday until 8pm.

Right next to the Victuals Market is the site of the Schrannenhalle, built under King Maximilian I according to a French model. This was a market hall over 430 m long, where grains were sold, and which burned down in 1932. Rebuilt with the original wrought-iron frames, the new Schrannenhalle was inaugurated in September 2005. Housing a market, shops, restaurants and cultural venues, the hall is a meeting place for old and young in the heart of the city.
