The Schrannenhalle - Viktualienmarkt
To the edge of the Viktualienmarkt is the Schrannenhalle. It was built in 1853 by Karl Muffat as a corn exchange. Schranne used to be the name for a grain market. The construction of metal and glass was considered a technical masterpiece at that time. Towards the end of the 19. Century the grain trade stagnated, the hall was partly dismantled. The other parts fell in 1932 because of a fire. In 2011, the hall was rebuilt and now includes retailers such as Feinkost Käfer, Jochen Schweizer and the beer hall of Hacker-Pschorr. A flagship store of Milka is in the basement.
