The Sweetest Place in Town

Honey House is one of the many unique stands at the Viktualienmarkt in the heart of Munich. In addition to honey, you may find all sorts of other treats – anything from liquors to candles, lotions to candies. Like most of the rest of the Viktuailenmarkt, everything is made and sold locally. Over the years, the market has transformed from a traditional farmers market to a popular market for gourmets. The prices are high, but you often get foods that you won’t find anywhere else in Munich. Given that Germany is generally not known for its cuisine – beyond Wurst and Schnitzel – it’s a great exception to find healthy, fresh foods. In total, you will find more than 140 stalls there. Thankfully, petitions to close the market and erect multi-storied buildings were avoided after WWII, thanks to significant financial support from the city of Munich.
