A great bar combined with a huge tourist trap. Amazing-looking place with tons of space, lederhosen-clad fellas playing live Bavarian music and German mädchens carrying Maßes of beer. A unique experience with great beer, as long as you manage to ignore the huge crowds of tourists. However, lots of locals also to be found. Great food that fits the beers (try the Schweinehaxe or Bratwurst mit Sauerkraut!) A must-see for someone visiting München.
Well, had to do it, right? Let’s see... There are so many tourists here that it’s hard to hear yourself speak. Cameras are clicking everywhere. An oompah-band is forced to play traditional Bavarian music in the center of the main room (which is quite beautiful though). Food is rather bland. Service was Horrible, completely uninterested, even handing me a hot plate that had obviously been taking right from the kitchen heating board. Ridiculous on all accounts. Thankfully, the beer is not nearly as bad as the service. Their Original is a nice Helles and their Dunkel does its job well too. Didn’t really care for the Weiss and the Sommer though. All in all, with Ayinger Speis und Trank right in front, and Andechser am Dom and Augustiner Bierhalle und Restaurant not far away, I know I will never come back here.
Ahh, at last I have been drinking beer in this world famous pub! A huge tourist trap crowded with people, a Bavarian Oompah band, large souvenir shop and the beer flowing in big 1 litre glasses. I had 50 cl, you do not need bigger... Although it was crowded, the service was efficient. I was sitting in the courtyard beer garden, a nice place! And the beers? Refreshing and good but nothing that challenges your taste buds. But, do we geeks always ned that? (Visited July 7th 2011)
Must stop if your in Munich. Sure its touristy but your probably a tourist so shut up and have fun. huge beer hall, big glasses of Hofbrau to enjoy, decent sausages and fun singing to boot. someone my party smashed a glass from cheersing to hard and they were friendly about helping clean it up and not scolding him. really fun. Proost!
Huge beer hall in Munich. Can get very crowded. I few beers to select from, which is pretty standard for the area. Beer and food are both decent, but not great. Prices are slightly higher than average. It might not be the best place, but it is still a must-see.
sicuramente è il posto più turistico della baveria in fatto di viaggi birrari, sicuramente è il posto in cui mi son trovato meno a mio agio, sembrava di stare in un’immensa trattoria il giorno delle comunioni. il cibo era scadente, le birre, beh l’hb è storia però dirvi che ciò che ho bevuto è degno di nota, quello no.
