Viktualienmarkt cat – Munich, September 2007
Munich’s Viktualienmarkt is a feat for both the eyes and the tastebuds. The market started out as a farmers’ market, moved there from the nearby Marienplatz in 1807 when the market outgrew the square. On an area covering 22,000m², 140 stalls and shops offer flowers, exotic fruit, game, poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices and takeaway foods like leberkaese or bratwurst on a roll. It’s a great place to stroll, take photographs, have lunch, or just to spy on everyone from between the plants at the florist, like this tabby cat was doing.
