The largest Beer Hall
The Hofbräuhaus is a world-famous Munich beer palace. For a long time, it was the seat of the corresponding brewery Hofbräu. The building can be found at Platzl in Munich old town. The Schwemme on the ground floor, a large beer hall, is the most famous part of the Hofbräuhaus and offers space for around 1,000 persons at wooden tables. For regulars, there are shelves where they can lock their Bierkrüge (beer mugs) away. Upstairs, there is a ballroom with a nine metre high vaulted ceiling, which can accommodate around 1,500 people, as well as further rooms again for a total of over 1,000 people (Wappensaal, Münchner Zimmer, Erkerzimmer, Bräustüberl, the former “Trinkstube”). The courtyard with the “Löwenbrunnen” (lion fountain) serves in summer as a beer garden.
