    Pork knuckle was great. Beer was great. Pretzels were the size of a small child. Be prepared to sit with strangers but that's part of the fun. Great experience and a must see if you're visiting.

    Good place, yes it's touristy & loud but still fun. The pork knuckle, veal sausages & big pretzels are great. Dunkel beer is the BEST!! I do NOT recommend the apple strudel, MUCH better other places.

    Best Pork Knuckle I've ever had with 1L Radler! Best combo. Friendly service. Lovely locals who helped me get service & order while we shared a communal table. Very busy. Large grp should book table.

    A must do once in your life (at least!). Get a pretzel from the pretzel girls, listen to the oompa band, order a schnitzel, and enjoy the beer (I loved the Dark Radler in particular).

    The best fish soup ever and the first time ever I saw so many people gathered at a single place! The way those guys work reminds a factory production - from the meals in line to the flying waiters!

    Among all historically significant details related to this place, the coolest thing is that there is a separate room with personalized beer glasses of some, so called, members of Hofbräuhaus.

    If you want to try bits of different things - go for cheese+meat platter, which is huge and delicious, rather than sausage one that has only 4 usual pieces. Weiss radler is awesome for non-beer lovers

    Great beer! Very spatious place with good live music. Best ti spend the night in the center of Munich with friends or family. A little bit expensive but worthy 😉

    Weinbauerschnitzel is great! I took my family here to try the Bavarian food and they loved it! Also the speed that the dish arrived at the table was quite good.

    Love this place. Food is good & you can't beat the atmosphere for a true Bavarian experience.Very crowded and may have to circle hall a few times to find seats.Don't be shy as you can share tables.

    An essencial in Munich. Bavarian tradition & history. Live music, funny place. Order a pretzel + some beers and shout "PROST!" when make a toast! Don't forget to go upstairs, at least to have a look!

    Very authentic restaurant! They have live music and the food is ok! It's a really big restaurant, a bit chaotic but cool! Visit is a must

    They might say this place is a tourist trap, but I had a great time: wonderful beer and food, fair price, decent service. Try blaukraut and a potato cake called knödel. 1st floor = no crowd.

    Huge beer hall, always crowded and you share the table with completes strangers but that's part of the charm. A traditional band plays music and the food is great too. A must visit in Munich.
  • Stephanos B.

    These people drink gallons of beer! They make Americans look like wimps. Great to visit during any World Cup. Amazing atmosphere of football fans. Everyone is friendly. Tip to Americans... Don't tip.

    Leave your hipster cool at the door and come in to have beer chugging singing fun! Order pork knuckle, obstler shots, pretzel, say prost, sing, drink and be merry. Tourist trap? Whatever! Fun!!

    One of the best restaurants in Munich. Sit downstairs in the "Schwemme" for the real Bavrian HB feeling, or go upstairs to the equally authentic, quieter restaurant. Same kitchen! All food is great

    personal favorites: hendl (either half with potato salad or quarter with a delicious salad), leberknödelsoup, haxn. get a side of reiberknödel! The apple strudel is a MUST for dessert - best Ever

    THe big Oktoberfest-style pretzels sold in the Schwemme by pretzl-girls are delicious. Kitchen is open till midnight or later, though a smaller menu is offered after 10pm. Get chicken and apfelstrudel
  • Katerina K.
    Trendy, nice Bavarian restaurant in Munich. Unspeakable atmosphere, get it classy. Join somebody, make a friends, try tasty food and delicious beer, listen amazing traditional music
  • Alexandros S.
    The beer is better than other places or beer-gardens in town. The atmosphere is very "Bavarish" and also they have live German Music played by a band

    An obvious tourist spot but still worth seeing. I suggest catching a beer there during the day and then heading to a less touristy Biergarten like the Augustiner at night.

    This world-famous beer hall is where you'll get the taste of true Greman brew (served in 1-liter steins) as well as local treats like veal sausage and pork roast. Just near central Marienplatz.

    The place is really nice, the dishes are delicious and so is the beer! But make sure your order has been made properly, I was fooled by a waiter for 40min and had to ask to another one for a pint.

    Italians, Italians, lot of Italians (me included)! The brewery is huge and typical, need to find a quieter time to visit and really judge

    Huge beer hall, the must-go place when in Munich. Home for the world-famous beer HB, make sure you've spotted the toilets BEFORE you start drinking. Too bad there's always plenty of tourists...

    Orinal place! Liters of beer! Bavarian atmosphere with mix of local and tourist people. Traditional food! The place to be in Munich! 🍻
  • Kerem A.
    Preferrably crispy pork belly and master steak👍🏻original HB beer..bitter taste ...atmosphere is authentic and traditional..always crowded..
  • John 忠威 Hans D.
    This is centrally located icon and a must for visitors. There is a shop for souvenirs whether you drink there or not. The atmosphere is pure fun and enjoyment

    Good city center alternative to beer houses at the Octoberfest Grounds, Theresienwiese where its difficult to get in especially when you are late during the day. Octoberfest food with live band.

    You can't miss with this classic Bavarian Bräuhaus! Even if u're in München for just a few hours, you've gotta check it out! Get beer (1L) and giant pretzels!

    No visit to Munich is complete without a visit at this famous "Wirtshaus". Ask for the price of a locker for you mug :-) In summer I prefer the small beer garden in the back.

    Great place to eat and drink beer with a traditional environment. Be careful with the menu, you could have a great dinner o get disappointed. Anyway, enjoy!!

    Must check this place out. Traditional Bavarian beer house with very good food and live music. The place is huge, but always very crowded and extremely noisy!

    This place is the HEAVEN of the beer! Good food and also live typical music. You cannot find a place like this anywhere. If you're in town, don't miss it!

    A brilliant Bavarian experience. The steins of beer and pork knuckle were a winner. Cracking band playing throughout the evening. A must visit when in Munich.

    The building itself is beautiful and they have a traditional band which makes for a nice atmosphere. Service isn't great and the food is below average. Augustiner HBhaus is significantly better.

    It's a must if you are in Munich even if it's crowded and all tourists come here, also for the shady history in the 1930-s

    When in Munich this is where you have to go!! First order a Maß of beer and then choose anything from the menu, you won't be disappointed!! Waiters can sometimes be a little rude..

    Great music, a bit of octoberfest ambiance during the year is always good! The food is average... May be because it is very touristic

    With all do respect to its history, the place is extremely packed, very hard to find a seat. You bearly hear what you talk to the person next to you due to loudness of the crowd.

    Sit anywhere, get yourself a huge litre glass of delicious beer and a pretzel, and enjoy this traditional (but touristy) beer hall.

    Very touristy, but worth a visit. The veal sausage is tasty but the locals recommend removing the skin. Also, it comes in water, it's not soup! Don't drink it!
