The Hofbrauhaus is vast, historic and atmospheric. The beer is excellent, the service efficient and the food hearty and typically Bavarian. It was very busy on the day of our visit and the Stammtisch system of reserved tables for regulars can be confusing for visitors. However, the atmosphere was great with live oompah music and we met a variety of... More

We didnt know about this place, until we got talking to a tour guide at the Dachau memorial site. He recommended we go to Hofbrauhaus as it is one the best known beer halls. As soon as we stepped in we felt the coziness and friendly atmosphere. We struggled to find a table but then eventually (probably 5-10 minutes looking)... More

Had dinner in the Festival Hall the weekend before Christmas. We booked in advance which was a good plan as even though the venue seats thousands downstairs it was very busy! Food was good value and pleasant. Portions of meat were big and I had the suckling pig which was very tasty. What really made the meal was the surroundings,... More

From the moment you walk through the doors, the music and vibe hits you! It's busy, but this just adds to the amazing atmosphere of this place. A good selection of food and drinks on the menu. Prepare to share a table with strangers as this place gets packed over lunch time! Not to be missed!

If you stayed here all day you'll wouldn't be able to find the way back to your hotel. Steins of beer an brass band and a great friendly atmosphere.

Bier keller as you would expect has its own atmosphere. Loud oompah band. Proud muncheners wearing lederhausen. Food and bier is expensive though. Very large but very busy. Think you should visit this place once though.

Four of us were travelling together and we spent a fun few hours here. We were entertained by a Tyrolean style band and by the cheering and singing locals and visitors! This venue is loud and busy and not a place for a quiet beer. We really enjoyed the visit and took the opportunity to look at some historic rooms... More

Such a cute place! Very very busy and you will run into every tourist in Munich, but worth the visit if you fancy a cold beer with the locals. You will most probably be seated at a table with others, typical Bavarian.

On our trip to the city of Munich we had to do the Hofbrauhaus thing as it seems to be a must, as expected it was packed on both attempts to get a table, so we gave it one last go before giving up altogether. On the third attempt we found a table upstairs and had to share it with... More
