Big, noisy Beerhall with excellent food and typical German beer selection (Helles, Dunkel and Weissbier). Available also in 1L mugs! Oompah-band is playing and things get very noisy in the evenings.

Very crowded, noisy and hot, just as beer halls are supposed to be. However, a great deal of the customers are tourists, who inevitably decrease the otherwise good atmosphere. I was more than irritated by some american mid-aged women, who complained about the (in their opinion) too large Maßkrugs and how the beers were too potent for them. Why on earth somebody, who doesn’t even like proper beer in general goes to a place like HB? I bet this place was one of the best bars in the world some 20-50 years back.

Too crowded, too hot, too expensive, still a place to visit and have a good time. The band plays one song and breaks for a beer. Had a liter and moved to the Ayinger and Augustiner across the street.

i´ve been in bush-gardens/florida. in the "festhalle" the "bavarian" band was performing "in münchen steht ein hofbräuhaus" in a very, very bad way. well - everybody has had to be there on time. germany´s most known place for beer and probably one of the most popular ones in the world. but that´s all. loud, crowded, expensive food - everything you expect from a typical place for tourists.

This is a must see for all beer drinkers. If you’re in America, though, just go to Las Vegas, Cincinnati, or Pittsburgh to visit one. I am not a big fan of their products, more of a Spaten or Schneider Weisse fan. The pretzels are great, but the food is horrid. The beer does make the moment...

As said by most here worth a trip at least once. I have to bring visitors here every once in awhile. It is still a good time either way. Go with a group for sure. But there are better places for sure in this fine city. But really go accross the street to the Ayingers Speis und Trank.

Tourist trap that was a good time. Food was pretty good as was the beer. German band that seemed to break more than they played. Busy place & huge

Hofbrauhaus is a great touristy place to go in Munchen at least once. With the typical oompa band and waiters in garb, it had all the atmosphere of a good touristy brauhaus. Due to the crowd, the service was a bit slow. Everything was pretty highly priced, but nothing beats having a Hofbrau brew in the Hofbrauhaus.

Well, this is a place that everybody should visit once, but I think once is enough. Typically full of tourists, many of them young Americans. All beers but one come in 1L mugs only, which is a frustratingly stupid tourist ploy meant to amplify the faux-authenticity of this place to the ignorant. After spending a couple of days in the garden of eden known as Franconia, this was about the furtherest thing I wanted to do, sit in a crowded, loud, fake German beer hall. I’m sure at some point years ago this was the real deal, but not anymore. The Sommer bier was tasty though, all 1000 ml of it.
