Where can I store my luggage in Munich?

It’s the kind of place where the locals like to drink: If you visit this great beer hall, don’t be surprised if you see their personal beer steins lining the walls.
Bavaria’s Duke Maximilian I had it built-in 1589. It was originally an extension of the State Brewery of Munich. At one time, this brewery provided 30% to 50% of the Bavarian state’s tax revenue. Eventually, the state beerhouse was opened to the public in the early 1800s. The ravages of World War II destroyed most of the Hofbräuhaus, except for the historic beer hall.

The Second World War severely damaged the station. Despite coming under heavy fire, the station resumed train services in the city after each Allied bombing. Eventually, 112 bombs fell in the area, and the train traffic had to be diverted to another one of the city’s railway stations. The loss in terms of life and property was immense. In the spring of 1945, Allied American troops overtook Munich. Eventually, reconstruction began in May of that year. By July, the station was operational enough to service almost 130 trains per day. By the end of the year, the station serviced almost 250 trains per day.
