The Hofbräuhaus (the Royal Brewery) in Munich is one of the world's prominent tourist traps. Second only to the Cinese Wall, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building and a few other lesser traps.

The ground floor is a huge beer hall named "die Schwemme" which means "the Flood" - and a flood it is. Thousands of people having their litre or two-litre "steins" served. Consuming them to the umpha-umpha of the Bavarian orchestra - often with talented bugler and singer Helga from Kufstein.

Try to get the table just to the right when you have reached the music stall. That table attracts the most foreigners and they are all very nice people. Night after night. See picture. Karin waving at far right.

Yes, you can eat as well. Try Spanferkel - but beware of Spanferkelinnereienragout. You probably don't want to know what it is.

Address: Hofbräuhaus - everyone knows where it is!
Directions: Just a short walk off Maximilianstrasse - not far from hotel Vier Jahreszeiten.
