Hofbräuhaus

Munich's top beer hall

Munich's most famous beer hall has been in business since 1589, at first just supplying the aristocratic Wittelsbach clan. The Hofbräuhaus started serving the public at large when it moved to these current premises in 1828, and slowly became a magnet for the great and good of the city - including major political figures such as Vladimir Lenin and Adolf Hitler. In fact, these walls ended up witnessing some key events of the 20th century, including the 1919 attempt to proclaim a Soviet Republic of Munich and Hitler's 1920 declaration of the Nazi Party's "25-point programme". Like many other buildings in Munich, it was flattened during World War II but was rebuilt in the 1950s. Today it's wildly popular and you can always find locals in lederhosen and dirndls having a grand old time quaffing beer; feasting on Bavarian cuisine; and listening to oompah bands. Ja, ja, ja, ja!
