Hofbrauhaus Tours

92 Reviews

Germans' love of beer is unrivaled worldwide, and Munich is home to Bavaria's most celebrated beer hall: Hofbrauhaus. Formerly the royal brewery for the Kingdom, Hofbrauhaus is now owned by the state government and also has the second largest tent at Oktoberfest - "Hofbrau-Festzelt".

Grab a stein of their finest brew and drink with friends in the restaurant, die Schwemme (beer hall), or Biergarten (beer garden) often accompanied by live music . In case there was any doubt about how much Germans value their beer, regulars to Hofbrauhaus keep their valuable steins in a series of safes in the beer hall.

Practical Info

Visitors to Hofbrauhaus come for the socializing and party atmosphere as well as the fantastic beer. Beer plays a central role in the cultural traditions of Bavaria, and no trip to Munich would be complete without a visit to the brewery that started it all. Despite being able to serve up to 5,000 people, Hofbrauhaus' popularity often makes it difficult to get a table. Regardless, the crowds shouldn't stop anyone from grabbing their Liederhosen and singing some traditional drinking tunes!
