    The Hofbrauhaus is probably the most famous brewery and pub in Munich. Located just off Marienplatz, it is typically packed day and night. The Hofbrau tent also figures prominently during Oktoberfest.

    No trip to Munich could be complete without a stop here! The pretzels the beer, the brats, all amazing!

    Word to the wise, don't sit down at a table with a table cloth on it unless invited. That's for the locals, and is frowned upon. Fortunately there was a group that thought us charming (ok probably more hilarious) that we knew how to polka, and proceeded to do said dance in front of the band, which they loved... but again, maybe because 2 girls were dancing, who knows. They didn't speak much English, us not much German, but we still had a blast!

    If you get the bratwurst in the pot of water, which I recommend, i was literally slapped and the fork knocked out of my hand. I guess you are supposed to pick it up with your fingers and slurp the meat out of the casing... Delicious, but weird, but whatever. You can't really go wrong with any beer, I recommend the Dunkel Weissen (yes a dark light beer, delicious!) And you can never go wrong getting a pretzel the size of your head. Ever.

    The main beerhall that everyone gravitates to in Munich. Worth going there to say that you've been but there are better beerhalls in my opinion in Munich.

    It's the Hofbrahaus in Germany...it's like a taste of Valhalla! Awesome beers in giant steins. I went by myself, sat down at a table full of American GI's and Australian girls and had a blast...

    De rigeur for a first trip to Munich. The main attraction is the beer, served in 1 liter mugs. They also serve gigantic soft pretzels to help soak it up. Kitschy (the waitstaff is clad in liederhosen) but fun.

    If you like beer than this is the mother ship. The atmosphere is pure beer festival all the time. Near the center of the city and a must place to experience.

    Was here and had wonderful beer and great sausages. Amazing that the waiters and waitresses can carry so many of the large glasses filled with beer at a time. Great location,

    Great place to grab a beer, a (giant) pretzel, and mingle with other tourists! They make a really good beer and lemonade too.

    posto caratteristico con ottima birra e cibo tipico, peccato che nel periodo dell'Oktoberfest sia stra colmo di gente e l'attesa per mangiare è lunga.... ma ne vale la pena

    Very touristy place, but go ahead and find seating for yourself. We got lucky and were able to order food before the 10pm cut off.

    Great place if you want to see part of the culture of Munich and drink the famous german beer! The minimum cup there is 1L! The staff wear tipical germany clothes and you can have fun listening the Germans singing local songs in germany while they make a toast (lot of times in the night) :D! Very nice place!

    Ormai frequentato solo da turisti. Vecchia birreria con orchestra, cameriere in costume bavarese, boccali di birra, würstel e stinco di maiale le specialitá. Si puó andare altrove. La zona, dove si trova il locale é pedonale.

    this is the temple of beer, if you come to munich you must stop here, very happy atmosphere, their beers are the best most of them 1 liter so if you drink three of four your are ready for anything.

    This is a tourist trap where the employees sing cheerfully wearing die lederhosen. It's a fun place for a group of friends.
