Germany - Viktualienmarkt Munchen
Viktualienmarkt or Viktualien Market in Munich, Germany.
Sent by Daniela, a postcrosser from Munich in Germany.
This is from Wikipedia : The Viktualienmarkt is a daily food market and a square in the center of Munich, Germany.
The Viktualienmarkt developed from an original farmers’ market to a popular market for gourmets. The selection, variety and exclusiveness of the products offered contribute to the market’s special flair. On an area covering 22.000m², 140 stalls and shops offer flowers, exotic fruit, game, poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices etc. Nowhere else in Munich can you find a greater variety of fresh food and delicacies.
Most stalls and shops are open during the official opening hours (Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.); but the Biergarten doesn't open until 9 a.m. Many stalls close at 6 p.m., before the standard closing time. There are special opening hours for flower shops, bakeries and restaurants.
