The historical Schwemme, which is located on the ground floor of the Hofbräuhaus, constitutes the heart of the Hofbräuhaus. Here, were the beer was once brewed, up to 1300 guests can be seated underneath the cross vaults at tables, some of which have already been here since 1897, as is proven by the numerous initials, names and comments carved into them. A bandstand where our in-house bands play every day forms the centre of the Schwemme. At the regulars` tables guests from all nations can experience the Bavarian way of life at first hand.
