Are there cafes/restaurants in Munoch's Viktualienmarkt?

Missy Nov 16, 2007 07:15 AM

As there are in Barcelona's Boqueria? I have a day and night in Munich-no museums for me. It will be all about food-the Viktualienmarkt, Dallemyer, and then the Christmas market. I'm debating whether to even schedule a "real" dinner. Will the offerings in both markets be interesting/sufficient? Or will I OD on greasy sausages? Is there something I should make time for? I have never had Bavarian food so I'm really looking forward to this-after Munich I am driving down to Mittenwald (near Garmisch-Partenkirchen), so I'd love any suggestions for eating in that region as well.

      There are sit-down restaurants all around that area but the market itself it is mostly stands. Eat a sausage at a viktualienmarkt stand for lunch, a mulled wine at the market, and a nice bavarian sit-down meal for dinner. close to the market and Marienplatz Wiesses Brauhaus might be worth a try, their wheat beer is the best in town but they get very crowded. It's on Tal. Zum Duernbrau is also very charming...it's been around since 1428 and very Bavarian. It is in the little Durnbrau alleyway off of Tal.

        An enthusiastic second on the Zum Duernbrau recommendation. I can't imagine being in Munich without eating at least one meal there.
