Viktualienmarkt in München...

It does not matter if one just want to spend some nice moments, to have a rest in the sun and a beer or to enjoy a fresh pressed fruit juice: "der Viktualienmarkt" (the market for food and drink /victuals) is a place not to be missed in Munich...Located in the heart of the city center, just behind the new town hall, this market offers an incredible amount of food specialties, snack bars and fresh fruits and veggies from all around the world.

My personal must-do (when i am passing by) is to have a fresh pressed juice: always difficult to choose between the possible mix of mango/strawberry/pineapple/kiwi/cocos/mandarine/orange/banana:-) Another stand which always brings a smile to my face is the one with animals made out of straw and decoration items of dried herbs. The cute hedgehogs, the looking almost like real geese, the funny pigs...

In the middle of the Viktualienmarkt is standing proud "der Maibaum" (the tree of May) depicting typical scenes of every day Bavarian (beer-)life.
