Who does not know in Germany the old beer tent song: „In Munich there is a Hofbräuhaus, one, two, ksufa“? The Hofbäuhaus is probably the most famous restaurant, beer hall and pub in Germany. It is not unusual to hear that the Hofbräuhaus is the most famous restaurant in the world. Overseas, e.g. in the USA, Australia and Japan, the Hofbräuhaus is considered the symbol of German beer tradition alongside the Oktoberfest. Munich is considered the beer capital of the world and the Hofbräuhaus is the most important, year-round figurehead of the beer metropolis.
The barley juice has been served here for almost 200 years. On the ground floor there is the sponges (large beer hall). Upstairs are the banqueting hall and smaller rooms. In the Schwämme you will find classic beer tables and several regulars‘ tables. Regular guests have regular mugs, which are locked with a lock and their own key when not present. Many Americans, Japanese and Munich residents can be met here during the day with a beer mug in their hands. The atmosphere is good and rich in alcohol, one easily comes into contact. In Schwämme there is live music from a Bavarian brass band playing well-known beer songs.
Whether you like such beer restaurants: the Hofbräuhaus is worth a visit. There’s always something going on, some say the Hofbräuhaus is „the year-round Oktoberfest“.
The prices at the Hofbräuhaus are okay. In the spring of 2017 a mass of beer (1 litre) will cost 8,60 €. You will not find a smaller beer on the drinks menu. Only Weißbier (wheat beer) is served in 0.5 litre glasses (for €4.50). In addition there is naturally good, Bavarian food. For example the crusty roast pork with potato dumplings for 11,50 € in 2017. Furthermore, there are many other main courses from about 8 to 12 Euro and inexpensive daily dishes.

How to get to the Hofbräuhaus: You can get to the Hofbräuhaus by S-Bahn (all lines), by underground lines U3, U6 all Marienplatz station and about 300 metres on foot, or by underground lines U3,U4,U5,U6 Odeonsplatz and about as long on foot. The Hofbräuhaus is in a northeasterly direction from Marienplatz and in a southeasterly direction from Odeonsplatz. It is better not to come to the Hofbräuhaus by car. For one thing, the parking situation in the city centre is not very easy. On the other hand, after one or even more measures of beer, one cannot drive anyway.
Our tip: Sightseeing tour through Munich
|A great possibility to see a lot of Munich in 1-2 days are the so called Hop On / Hop off buses. These are red double-decker buses in British style, which drive on 3 different routes through Munich. You can get off at many stops and continue with a later bus. Tickets for the hop on / hop off buses are much cheaper on the Internet at Getyourguide than on site. More information: Click here|
