The Hofbräuhaus am Platzl is a famous beer hall in Munich, Germany. The beer hall was originally built in 1589 by Duke Maximilian I as an extension of the Hofbräuhaus brewery. The public was first admitted to the beer hall in the 19th century. It has been heavily renovated/rebuilt since it was first built, the most recent rebuild was after the Second World War as the hall was heavily damaged by bombing; the festival hall opened in 1958 marking the end of the post-war rebuild. It is now a major tourist attraction in a city and region that is known for its beer.
