Helga and I did walk around the Viktualmarkt for a few minutes to see the Maypole that dates from the 15th Century along with several of the food stands throughout the market but we didn't partake in any of the food and drink there. It was a good Munich experience to see what life might have been like in the 15th Century when the place wasn't overrun by tourists. If you are interested in seeing the Vitualenmarkt, go through the Marienplatz past St. Peter's Church and you are there. I recommend it for a quick tour to check out the produce but go somewhere less touristy and inexpensive for food and beer.

At the heart of the market is a traditional maypole surrounded by a beer garden. A May Pole is a unique Bavarian custom. Its history dates back to the 16th century. A maypole is decorated with pictures of the main buildings and the main crafts of the village or even city. It is also a tradition that men set up a small May Pole at the house of the girl he loves.

There are stands selling everything from beer and wine to fruits, cheese and meats. There are lots of stuff to taste! A good lunch can also be had from one of the many food stands selling beer, sausages and other foods.
Operating hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 6:00pm and Saturday from 7:30am to 1:00pm. However for the best selection, come very early. The merchants close down whenever their day's inventory is sold out so very few stalls remain open in the afternoon.
