I've been to the Hofbräuhaus a number of years ago and had fun. Today, with 3 friends, I returned to this popular tourist destination. I will never again! As Oktoberfest is over, the beer hall/restaurant was not busy. Many tables had available seats. We chose our seats, bought a pretzel from the wandering seller and waited to order our beer.... More

I was a bit cynical about coming here, expecting it to be a bit of a rip off tourist trap especially when I saw the gift shop. How wrong! Yes it is full of tourists but then again millions of tourists can't be wrong. The building is wonderful, full of dark brown wood, painted vaulted ceilings, the service polite and... More

A greeter welcomed us upon our noon arrival; offering us our choice of dining inside or out. Sat outside in the garden area. Our waiter promptly provided menus in English. Oktoberfest light beers arrived in huge steins, along with a vegan meal, bread basket and sausage plate. All proved tasty and economical. Midway through our meal another couple joined our... More

Great place to go and experience a traditional beerhouse. Atmosphere was fantastic, the beer was great and not overpriced at all. Traditional food served which has to be tried. Table service quick and very polite, even when it was at its busiest. Band was great and got the whole place going. Good mix of young and old, tourist and resident,... More

On our first day in Munich we wanted to visit the Hofbräuhaus and headed that way. We decided to eat on the way. That was a mistake. The prices and selection of food are much better at the Hofbräuhaus than the other places we visited while there. Great atmosphere and good cold beer. Also if you want to buy their... More

You gotta check this place out. Munich's iconic Hofbrauhaus is fun and entertaining especially if you're there with a group of friends - but you'll probably make some friends whilst you're there.

eventhough this is a tourist attraction, orices are reasonable and the location is great! Staff wear traditional clothing and there is a band playing music, from which you can escape by heading into the yard. Staff are friendly, food is good, beer is great! Worth a visit!

Even if you just walk through this is a must see, must experience. Best to visit earlier in the day if you want to get a seat by the Oompah band or just want a little quieter experience. Not that it's that quiet, mind you. The whole area around the HBH is very nice for shopping and sightseeing.
