The Hofbräuhaus has been called the best and worst beer hall in the world. It seems that tourists expect it to live up to their expectations and if it does, its great; if it doesn't, it’s terrible. Perhaps the problem is the expectation itself. If...More

The tavern is huge. Wander in and through the vast halls seeking a table to sit at. You can share tables with others. Some tables are set higher with high bench stools and can be a little harder to get on and off if you...More

Everybody knows of the iconic Munich Hofbrauhof. It is effectively a very large beer tent but in a building and with the added attraction of an Oompah band playing every few minutes. The beer comes in 1 litre glasses and is good value. We did...More
