The humidity and noise (and yes some of the smells of sick people) was a little off putting. I equate it to a college Friday beer garden. Too loud, too sloppy, too drunk. If you're 21 and you're in the mood to tie one on, you've arrived. If you've come for dinner or post dinner drinks, it's probably not for... More

Hofbrauhaus is a must-visit beer hall in Munich. Its huge beer hall's indoor and garden tables are often filled with its patrons drinking beer and eating sausages listening to the live band performance. It would be a memorable experience to be there joining the crowds over beer and sausage. Hofbrauhaus is in an easy walking distance from Marienplatz

The best place to know Bavarian culture. You can drink some good beer, eat typical German food, and listen to some Bavarian live music. We made friendship with some good guys and had a lot of fun. Waiters are very fast and funny. In the second floor you can visit the dinner room where the national socialism became with their... More

It's a beautiful and historical place. It's worth to visit it at least once. However, it's very busy and noisy. It took me 10 min to find a place to sit in such a huge restaurant. The food is fantastic but be careful and don't lose your attention while you're ordering beer. Be very specific and don't let the waiters... More

Arguably both a must do German experience and a tourist trap. I'd stop in again though. Beer and pretzels were great, as was the music! Very crowded, but if you keep looking you'll find a table even if you have to go to another room in the place. Service can be very slow at times.

HB house is a traditional German pub with food and live music. Quite renowned for their beer. Positives - reasonably priced menu - nice beer - food is ok, not so much to my liking as it is generally very meaty - professional staff - live German traditional music - lots of positive vibes - an eye opener to experience...

Had the most fantastic time at the Hofbrauhaus! It happened to be the last day of Carnival and the atmosphere was electric!! Met some locals who were 'regulars' and they were great company and learned a lot about the history of the Hofbrauhaus from them. The beer was great too!!

Very busy but we sat outside on the patio. We enjoyed this more. Food was better than I expected and fast service. Must get a pretzel from one of the people walking around with them.

I love those big beer houses in Germany. It was only wrong time and they did not offer lunch jet. I was hoping to get the BEST TRADITIONAL meal of Germany- SAUERBRATEN. Maybe next time then.
