Viktualienmarkt - Munich Germany
Munich's Viktualienmarkt has always been one of my favorite places. It's a food market in the center of Munich. Our Goethe Institute German class was about a ten-minute walk away so we ate lunch here almost every day.
There are stands where you can buy produce, meat, wine, bread and many other staples. In the center there are tables (photo) where you can sit to eat your picnic or buy prepared food from one of the stands. You should buy a drink (beer!) from one of the stands, but you don't need to buy food.
Our favorite stand served "Bio" food including sausage, hamburgers (pork), fried potatoes, sauerkraut, rolls (Semmel), pretzels (Bretzl) and bio beer. The "Bio" label is similar to US organic. This stand had its own tables directly outside. Here's a photo of the hamburgers, potatoes and Weissbier.
