The history, the beer, the food, the music, the most renowned German Beer Hall probably in the entire country of Germany is The Hofbrauhaus. This place is dream. Prices are a little high but you don't need to drink much to get have a good time here. The only negative side to this place is that it is full of tourists. Lowenbrau or Spaten are the better choices if you want to avoid that scene but nonetheless this place is great.

A great place to visit while in Munich. It has that real Bavarian feel. The place is packed full of people, especially during the football game night. It’s a must do in Munich to treat yourself to a 1l glass of beer together with some typcial Bavarian cuisine. Awesome.

A fun spot but a bit of a tourist trap. A must on your first visit to Munich, but not so much after that. The food is ok, and there is usually a traditional German band playing. A fun place to people watch, although most of the patrons are out of towers.

A bit of a downer when you find out there are a several HB Haus locations elsewhere in the US etc.

A staple of beer lore. You cannot go to Munich and not stop by the Hofbrauhaus. It only takes one or two litres to get the juices flowing. The sounds of Bavarian music, coupled with traditional Bavarian waitresses made for an incredible atmosphere.

The food was good, but only a fair value for the price. You're obviously paying for more than just the food. The beers are actually reasonably priced, or at least what I was expecting to pay.

Overall, this place is great, and I fully intend to return each time I visit Munich--if I am ever so lucky.

One of the best places in Munich.

This place is amazing, the service is super fast (20-40 seconds and the beer is on your table), the atmosphere is amazing (along with traditional music that played occasionally), I ordered potatoes too, and they were superb!

No words to explain this place, maybe videos will help...

If you're in Munich - You MUST try this place (I've been there almost 3 hours straight)

I lived in Munich for 5 years. This is THE Münchener Bierhalle. Hofbräu is not the best of the six München Helles lagers*, nor is the Hofbräuhaus the most authentic**, but it has carved out a wonderful place between touristy and legitimate that no other place has.

Yes, there are tourists there. There are also locals in droves. The locale is close to Marienplatz but you'll have to venture north into Schwabing for the newer, cooler Munich.

No trip to Munich is complete without a visit.

* Augustiner Helles is the best Munich Helles. Tegernseer is even better though from further south in Bavaria.
** The Löwenbräukeller can't be beat for authenticity and ambience awesomeness.

Great place, good food, and plenty of freshly brewed beer. At first it seems a bit touristy, but after while you find yourself talking to complete strangers from all over the globe. Don't expect to get off cheap either, but I would gladly invest in the experience again.

Alles Gute

Everyone has to go once for the experience. Had a liter of Hofbrau Original and a liter of Funnel, and both were fresh, crisp, and delicious. Even in January the service was spotty and slow. My wife and I each ordered weiswurt, but for some reason we only received one order. That being said, the atmosphere of the place was enough to make it worth the visit, and the other diners were warm and friendly as could be. We will certainly return.

Spent a hot summer evening here during the 2013 heat wave. The atmosphere is amazing- a bit chaotic and packed but also jovial and friendly. If you want to go to a bavarian beer hall then you will find what you're looking for. Lots of tourists- but hey, you're probably one to them so stop whining. The beer is great. Service is good too- better than you'd expect given the chaos inside. Descent selection of their beers- about what you'd expect if you've been to some of other places in Germany. Food was delicious and there was lots of it. Lots of fun for any beer fan.

It may be the 'tourist' thing to do in Munich, but it is worth the visit regardless. Very light hearted atmosphere, excellent beer, the food is good. The service was spotty, particularly in the central beer garden. Service on the second floor was better and less crowded.

We sampled several of the menu items, things were good though nothing really jumped out at us as above and beyond. More importantly, the beer is pretty outstanding.

All in all, a very good value and a nice place to relax and take in some very good beer.
