Munich, the home of authentic and traditional German cuisine. This is Germany’s culinary capital. Classic hearty dishes, fatty spreads, exquisite homemade cakes and the home of the beer hall – this is Munich, and you are going to dive into the tastes and flavours of this rich food culture on our More Than A Viktualienmarkt Tour.
The capital of Bavaria and the third largest city in Germany, Munich is home to Germany’s most famous football club Bayern Munich, and the city holds a unique place in Germany’s colourful history. Learn more about the secrets of the city, as we paint a picture of its history and culture through its food.
At Fork & Walk Food Tours, we pride ourselves on providing our guests with a range of taste experiences, such as traditional items like sausages, beer and fresh baked goods, as well as the new direction of Munich gastronomy – its growing coffee scene and funky cafes dishing up a delicious version of our favourites.
Starting from the famous Viktualienmarkt Food Market, we take you on a food adventure through its renowned dishes, tasting famous and unique meats, while uncovering some truly unusual flavours at a fusion ice cream stand.
Leaving the market behind we head to the side-streets of Munich to go deeper into its neighbourhoods by foot. We take to a Bavarian-Franconian restaurant from the 17th-century brick vault, with rich, hearty fare & beer garden.
Feeling full and overly-indulgent, we reveal Munich’s boutique shopping side-streets (which we are certain some of you might want to note to revisit), before we finish off with magnificent Viennese-style dining on classic cakes and tea to digest the earlier food entourage.
