Each time I go to visit my home town Munich in Germany, it is like a must to pay a visit to my most favorite place in town.
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.
Viktualien… victuals, is a Latin word , the word for food.
Das Honighaeuschen, ” the honey hut”, every thing about honey …
The beer garden, a favorite place for locals and tourists
Das Reinheitsgebot ……the sign of the pureness of beer….it’s a beer law since the year of 1487..
An endless variation of different kinds of potatoes
Wild mushrooms in season..
Lovely decorations for your home
one of the ingredients to make beer..Hopfen…
The Heiliggeist Kirche… the holy spirit church next to the market, where I always step in for a moment of gratitude and silence..
…decorated with doves made of paper…. peace to All.
