Hofbräu Berlin

Hidden Berlin Facebook and Instagram feeds (11 March 2016)

We’ve all been there: that friend who’s been so excited to visit you in Berlin spends a couple of days here before huffing: “It’s not very German, is it?!” Explaining that Berlin’s actually something of a multicultural metropolis doesn’t wash: they want Schnitzel, beers and Schlager music, and they want it now. Where you gonna head? Hofbräu Berlin, of course. Modelled after the original Hofbräuhaus in Munich, this is Bavarian culture on a gargantuan scale. Squeeze onto a wooden bench and tuck into Käsespätzle, Weißwurst and veal Schnitzel to the raucous backdrop of the live German band. All the drinks come in a traditional-looking glass “stein” – so even if you’re on the Diet Coke, you can join in the cry of “Prost” before quenching your thirst for *real* German culture. If you’ve not cottoned on by now… Hofbräuhaus is a bit of a tourist trap. So come prepared to pay tourist prices. (Yeah, the Wiener Schnitzel’s good… but is it €17.90 good?!) But for a night of rip-roaring Bavarian fun and games, Hofbräu’s a very safe bet. #Hofbräu #Hofbräuhaus #HofbräuBerlin #Käsespätzle #FoodPorn #Berlin #HiddenBerlin #GermanFood #BavarianFood #Bier #Beer #BierKeller #BerlinFood #Dinner #Dins #Tourists #BerlinMitte #Schlager #LiveMusic #GermanMusic #GermanRestaurant
