The most famous tavern in Munich—heck, probably the most famous beer hall in the entire world—is the Hofbräuhaus.

The current building is only about 100 years old, but a Hofbräuhaus has been here since 1589. Though perpetually chockablock with out-of-towners these days, it's still fun.

The Hofbräuhaus is state-run, can seat 4,500 people over three floors (there's dancing on the fourth), and provides the requisite oompah music from 11am right on through until closing at 11:30pm. (The daily Bavarian folk evening show starts at 8pm.)

If you can't be in Munich for Oktoberfest, this place will give you a pretty good idea of what you're missing.
