  • Gorgeous church. You go to Tutzing and take bus 958 which drops you at the base of Andechs. A long incline to walk up. It has a tower that has 13 flights of steps for €1.00. Their food opens at 11:00 and they have superb Haxen. Beer is great. Get there before 12:00 or few seats left.
  • Nice touristy place but huge crowds over the weekend. I think the Ettal looks beautiful if you hike around the place. Huge parking.
  • Beautiful monestary with great views. The monks really know how to make great beer as well. Even the alcohol free beer taste great!
  • I wish I could rate the Monastery on multiple levels, as a pilgrimage site, a brewery and a restaurant. I hope my pictures do justice to what you will see in the Monastery. A beautifu , prayerful environment. Well worth the time to visit and to refresh yourself spiritually and bodily.
  • Old charm German pub with tasty food and beer. Awesome views from the top of the Monastery tower.
