The Viktualienmarkt in Munich, issued in 1807 by King Maximilian 1, has developed from an original Famer’s Market  to a popular market for gourmets. It’s 140 stalls and shops  offer flowers , exotic fruit, poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices and so much more…..

During World War 2 this square with it’s cozy atmosphere was severely damaged.
