  • As in Bavaria, visited the monastery a worthy place for excursions. The magnificent interior of the temple and the opportunity to taste the famous Bavarian beer was first brewed by monks and cooks now for the secret recipe. And take it with you in the form of souvenirs we just unimpressed. Quiet tidy town, beautiful nature and tranquility have conquered our hearts.

  • For every visitor to the time on the Ammersee, a trip to Andechs monastery and brewery was simply belongs to the compulsory portion. Very nice beer garden where you can live out the conviviality. Super memory

  • Great beer... The real deal!! A pork's lover paradise. Authentic Bavarian food !
  • Great food, great beer, worth the 90 minute walk up. Fantastic views. 1euro to go up the bell tower. Catch train from Munich 10 euro. Lakeside is nice too.
  • Wonderful spot to hike up and be rewarded with beer and bratwurst. Very beautiful scenery and lots of people
  • The church's tower offers a nice view of the countryside but the church is not at all interesting. The beer made in the kloister was a lovely surprise.
  • Wos wuist sogn, supa hoid!
