If any single building could be said to symbolise Munich's most famous festival, Oktoberfest, then the Staatliches Hofbrauhaus would be the one to choose. It was once the Bavarian royal brewery, but it's now owned by the government. Aside from the brewery itself, the Hofbrauhaus organization also owns the Hofbrauhaus am Platzl (an original 17th century inn, now a traditional Bavarian restaurant, beer hall and ballroom. If you want sausage, lederhosen and music that incorporates yodeling, this is the place to come) and the Hofbraukeller, a cosy and rather more sedate Bavarian restaurant in a cellar.
