Our social event will take place in the 500-year-old brewery at 20:00, 2nd floor (festival hall) of Hofbräuhaus
Festival Hall (Festsaal)
Show-piece of the beerpalace is the historical Festival Hall on the second floor. With a width of 17,5 m and a length of 42 m it is the largest room of the building. 1944 it was destroyed by two bombs. It was restored in 1958 and shortly after destroyed by fire. On the walls you find flags which represent the dominions once ruled by Bavaria. Here large events and parties are held. There is traditional folk music almost daily for Munich locals and guests from all over the world.
In the heart of the Hofbräuhaus in earlier days beer was brewed. More than 100 years ago the brew kettles
stood in the highceiled Schwemme. Today there stand tables which are partially from the year 1897. 120 tables are reserved for regular guests (Stammtisch) and more than 3.500 guests are here at home. Few tables have the privilege of an own sign. Just left of the main portal there is a beer tap and at its side a rarity: a steinvault where loyal customers can store their own stein (mug). In the middle of the Schwemme you find the music stage, and that is where folk musicians play the best Bavarian beer hall music.
