Wochenmarkt - July Window Wall Hanging Wilhelm Schweizer
Muenchen - Viktualien Markt
Munich - Viktualienmarkt
The Viktualienmarkt is a daily food market and a square in the center of Munich, Germany.
The Viktualienmarkt developed from an original farmers' market to a popular market for gourmets. In an area covering 22,000 m2 (240,000 sq ft), 140 stalls and shops offer flowers, exotic fruit, game, poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices and so on. Most stalls and shops are open during the official opening hours (Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.); but the Biergarten doesn't open until 9 a.m. Many stalls close at 6 p.m., before the standard closing time. There are special opening hours for flower shops, bakeries and restaurants.
3-1/2" x 4-1/4" tall.
The street market marks the month of July in Wilhelm Schweizer's recitation of the months of the year. The colorful and aromatic markets held each week throughout Germany are one of the highlights of a trip to Germany. You will taste and smell and enjoy bounty from all the local farmers.
The unparalleled Wilhelm Schweizer of Bayern hand painted pewter!
Known as Zinn in Germany, these pewter ornaments, whether standing or hanging pewter, are truly heirlooms in the making. Hand made and hand painted by the talented artisans of Schweizer Pewter of Germany, they are made today precisely the same way they were made hundreds of years ago. And in the same place! In the little Bavarian village of Diessen am Ammersee.
The standing and hanging ornaments are hand painted on both sides. The window and wall hangings are painted on one side.
Please note that since these are all hand painted, the same mold may appear different from the ones we show. That's the charm of Schweizer!
Begin your family tradition now, future generations will thank you.
