With my girlfriend and a another couple we went here on our trip to Europe because we were told this was a must visit beer hall in Munich. This place was huge and rich in history, more then one live band playing at the same time and that gives you an idea of how big this place was. We sat at a massive table with several other groups from all over the map and even snorted some snuff with an old German lady. A small selection of decent beers for the boys and a lemon beer mix for our ladies served in a massive mug (my profile pic is the mug in question) a great novelty and what I imagined a German beer glass to look like. I ate a bunch of meat and was well fed with pretzels being served by pretty young German girls who seemed embarrassed by their traditional outfits that were clearly put on for the tourists like myself. At the end of the day we had a blast here just drinking and talking to the locals and tourists alike, not where a beer geek would go to sample a bunch of brews in a quite environment but if you want to laugh drink and be merry this place is a must.

If you are traveling in Germany (i.e., do not live there), you HAVE to experience the Hofbräuhaus in München. When people think of Germany, this is the picture that comes into their minds. Oompah band, sauerkraut with a variety of wurst, and gemutlichkeit; if you don't have a good time here, you are dead.

Tourist trap in Munich. Much better restaurants and beer to be had with a better atmosphere.

A must see destination for beer lovers traveling through Munich if at the least to enjoy the fresh beer and see this vast beer hall. Great beer, good service and descent food.

It shouldn't be too surprising that you'll only find Hofbräu beer being served here and a fairly standard menu of German pub food. The service was courteous but like much of Bavaria, don't wait for a server to stop over you'll have to let him know you thirsty or hungry.

There are three floors with group seating, an oompah band with a slightly raucous party crowd on the first, at let post Oktoberfest. The second floor has a quieter table service where you can sit with just your party. The third floor was all reserved seating for large tour bus sized parties.

This place is crazy. I went in the week leading up to Oktoberfest so my opinion may be skewed by a lot of things. First off, come in and sit anywhere. All community seating and no-one minds a friend, right? Secondly, look for the pretzel lady. €4 (ish) later, start looking over the menu for some awesome food and beer. They have different language menus available, ask for one if you need one! Seevice was terri le, but it was busy and like I said, during the lead-in to oktoberfest.. They had an awesome band and the vibe was great!

In the heart of Munich, this is why you come to this city. Dark wood, old world ambience. Oompah band in lederhosen cranking out the singing songs. Didn't eat anything , just come here for the bier and the atmosphere. Touristy? Yes. But, I don't live in Munich so I must be a tourist!

Loved the atmosphere when we walked out in. Just what I was expecting from a traditional German beer hall. Very busy but we were welcomed when we asked to sit with two other men at one of the tables. It took awhile to get someone to take our beer order. Even longer to get our food order in. The giant pretzels were outstanding and the bratwurst and sauerkraut was out of this world. They had a band playing traditional German music and there were groups of patrons singing along with the band. Overall a terrific experience for an American.
