We're tourists, so we felt it was our obligation to come here, and it was every bit as good as we had heard. This is a busy place and has room for hundreds, if not thousands of people. We'll add our review here, but so many people come here that it may never get read. We came here twice, once... More

It's busy, and rowdy with a great atmosphere, and quite simply you have to go and visit if you are in Munich. You will be seated with people from all over the world, as it's very popular with tourists visiting. I spent the afternoon here. If you are shy and don't like beer, then you may not enjoy it. As...

What fun the oompa band encouraged everyone to stay for at least one beer, this place with shared non-reserved tables was spotless, and bright - what a pleasure to stay for at least a beer

Historical brewery, to be surely visited. The dishes are typical Bavarian with very affordable prices. The beer is really good, we are in Germany after all. Very noisy, always crowded. Is not really the best place for a romantic dinner i would say. To visit if you are in Munich for the first time.

Great atmosphere and beers!! The musicians wore traditional dress and played a selection of well known bavarian tunes. Large tables- always busy. After 6pm you can only get 1 litre steins - which is a good and a bad thing! ;)

Typical German place that offers one of the best types of beers in München and also typical dishes. It's an obligatory stop when you visit the famous German city.
