Munich’s legendary Hofbrauhaus beer hall is so renowned around the globe, that a number of international replicas have sprung up in its honor but nothing beats a visit to the original. First opened in 1589 by Duke William V to serve the aristocracy, the Hofbrauhaus became well known for its homebrewed beers and ales, and by 1610 was opened to the public.

With its unbeatable history dating back more than four centuries, the Hofbrauhaus remains Munich’s number one beer hall, a central drinking haunt for those attending the annual Oktoberfest celebrations and at the top of tourist itineraries year-round. Today, the historic beer hall features a vast ground floor hall, the ‘Schwemme’, that seats up to 1,300 guests on long tables that date back to the late 19th century.
