Walking through the Munich Grossmarkthalle is a real experience! Once a week, the city invites with an official guide to a guided tour through the market halls, where goods from all over the world are sold exclusively to traders. With its large selection of regional and exotic food and fresh flowers, the Grossmarkthalle München has been one of the largest in Europe since 1912. Although it is called the "belly" of Munich, traders from Tyrol to Aschaffenburg also shop here every morning – from small fruit traders to large companies such as Dallmayr.
