A must do when in Munich

I think that going to the Hofbrauhaus is a must do at least one, when you are in Munich. We when a couple of times during our stay in Munich for Beer and Pretzels

You can't say you have been to Munich if you haven't experienced the Hofbrauhaus! It is huge, noisy with communal tables and great beer and meals. It also provides a chance to meet people from all over the world and share a beer and experiences. The traditional beer is served in 1 liter mugs and the wait staff does a... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip with my adult son. We would sit at a big table with strangers and met all kinds of interesting people! Yes it is touristy, but we are tourists!

Have a great time having lunch or dinner, with a local band playing amazing music. Food is outstanding and the beer is very good too. Great atmosphere in this place. Wiener Schnitzel is the best.

I've been at the Hof Brauhaus twice recently, back during Octoberfest and then the second week of Jan '17. While it's a must-stop for tourists, stick with the beer and pretzels while there. For better food and equally good beer, go to the Paulaner Brauhaus or the Augustiner Keller Brauhaus. Both have similar feel to Hof Brauhaus, just not as... More

It was definitely busy when we visited and finding a table wasn't the easiest, but I really enjoyed it. I expected it to be a tourist trap but I didn't think it was at all. We had good beer, good food, and made new friends. I definitely think it's worth visiting.

We had a very nice time in this place. A liter size and half liter size beer mugs with excellent beer. The place is noisy but festive. Giant pretzels abound. A traditional Oompah band plays excellent polkas and marches. The beer garden is quieter. This is a famous place rich in history. We are glad we visited and had a... More

Actually most people in Munich would look at the Hofbräuhaus like a classical tourist trap - mostly because they haven't been there for years. There are many many other really excellent Bavarian restaurants even close by. However, if you have the chance - go an have a look. Food and beer is authentic and as good as it needs to... More

Yep, it's crowded, noisy (unbelievably noisy), and touristy. However, the atmosphere was fun, the service was good, despite how busy it was, and the food was pretty good and reasonably priced. The pretzels were amazing. We went quite early in the evening and the staff were really sweet to my little boy, who was enjoying having his coke in a... More
