  • Bavarian culture and the best (stark) - beer of the world come together to Andechs. Not for nothing, the Andechs is weekends crowded. There are long worldwide spoke around: you want to experience Bavaria and drink the best beer in the world - go to Andechs! (absolute caution: Andechs is not for drivers-the beer is simply too strong) Take a taxi, or let you pick up or moves after Herrsching but the car is taboo!

  • 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!
