by doug48

the hofbrauhaus is probably the most famous beer hall in germany. located in the altstadt (old town) it is a short walk from the marienplatz. in 1589 duke wilhelm V founded a brewery near the site of the present day hofbrauhaus. the current building was built in 1808. many famous people have visited this beer hall, some include mozart, josephine baker, and lenin. during the early days of the nazi party the hofbrauhaus was used for political rallies. a fun place to visit to drink beer and listen to bavarian music. open 9:00AM daily. note: the tables with table cloths are reserved for regulars.
