Τhe capital city of Bavaria is an imperial city with enormous roads and magnificent buildings. While in Munich, you should take a walk in the Residenz, visit the luxurious Cuville Theater, the impressive Allianz Arena stadium, as well as the beautiful natural parks. And of course, don’t miss the wonderful experience of visiting the local markets, which will surprise you with their unique atmosphere and their countless hidden treasures.
Kripperlmarkt am Rindermarkt
We couldn’t avoid starting an article on Munich’s markets with a Christmas market, for obvious reasons. Kripperlmarkt is not the largest or the most-crowded Christmas market in the city, and perhaps that’s the reason why we mention it. This gorgeous little market is located in the city’s center. Here you’ll find various food and drinks stalls serving a wide range of delicacies and interesting drinks, like ‘Feuerzangenbowle’ and ‘Gluhbier‘. Authentic Bavarian Christmas atmosphere, sensational smells and tastes… What else could you ask for?
This flea and antique market is located on Rennbahnstrasse, next to the horse racing track. Open on a regular basis (check out the market’s website for further details), Flohmarkt Daglfing is the place where you will find clothes, pieces of classic furniture, rare pickups and other collectibles. After buying various treasures in the flea market, the nearby panoramic restaurant will provide you with the necessary rest and relaxation, as well as a great view of the horse racing track.
The famous Viktualienmarkt, with a history that is centuries old, is an endless daily food market in the heart of the city. Open during official opening times, the market’s benches are full of flowers, fruits, fish, juices, spices, meats, wines, tea collections and more.
This flea market is open every Friday and Saturday from 9am until 4pm, and it is located in the Spiridon-Louis-Ring. It hosts about 500 stalls, and even though it is not the largest flea market in the city it is considered among the best. You can combine your visit here with a visit to the nearby Olympia-Shopping Center. The whole concept is organized by the Bavarian Red Cross, which means that you have an extra reason to come by, as the proceeds from the rent paid by the sellers are used for charity reasons.
The biggest flea market in Munich is organized once every year, on the first Saturday of the Spring Festival, and is located on Theresienwiese, as you can tell by its name. Within the framework of this gigantic event, more than 2,000 retailers and 80,000 visitors are given the opportunity to meet with each other. Clothing, furniture, gadgets, antiques, militaria and so much more are here to please every taste and every budget.
