What people are saying about Viktualienmarkt

A very interesting, exciting and entertaining tour. Elsbeth took us on a journey through time to old Munich with funny historical anecdotes. Although I've been living in Munich for some time and have been to the center so often, I've learned a few new things. Now I know where the old city walls were and why the butchers had to move outside the city walls. The tour gave me a lot of pleasure. I would book again anytime. Absolutely to recommend!!!
