Breakfast at the

The market is set up in the early hours of the morning, the sun peeps over the rooftops and Munich wakes up. The market traders place their goods in front of the market stalls and fresh produce is delivered. You can watch this hustle and bustle and treat yourself to a breakfast – whether it’s a fresh croissant or Bavarian veal sausage and pretzels.

Ultimately, you have to decide whether you want to have breakfast directly at the market or in one of the numerous cafés in the neighbouring houses or alleyways.
