Munich Hofbräuhaus - München


The Munich Hofbräuhaus has a history of over 400 years of brewing. It was the seat of the Hofbrauhaus Brewery in Munich for a long time. In a beautiful location on the Platzl, it offers Bavarian delicacies such as pork hock or roast pork and of course the famous Hofbräuhaus beer for up to 3000 guests daily. The Hofbräuhaus is a popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike. With a little luck you can also see a Bavarian Original in Bavarian styled clothing. Well worth a visit any time of day. Most of the time plays a small brass band Bavarian folk music.
