Located next to the Marienplatz in the city center, the Viktualienmarkt is Munich's largest fruit and vegetable market. It is about 200 years old and started as market for the sale of herbs.
Here, you find not only exotic fruits and vegetables, but also typically Bavarian food and snacks as well as spices and flowers. On the Viktualienmarkt, there also is a beergarden.
The Schrannenhalle near the Viktualienmarkt that was built in 1851 by King Max II was reconstructed and re-opened in 2005 as meeting point for people with many stalls and restaurants as well as cultural events. Until it burnt down in 1935, it used to be a corn loft.
