  • We caught the bus to Andechs - opting out of the walk because the temperature was very high - which made the trip there really, really easy. Once there we climbed the slope to the church and admired b...  more »

  • It's very nice to eat outside, because you habe a nice view of Andechs. You can go in the church ⛪, it's beautiful inside. It's a pity that only 6 Monks live here.
  • One of the most fascinating place you shall find near Herrshing. The church is so nice and scenic. Liked the sun dial clock working accurate.
  • Worth the hike from Herrsching S Bahn. You can also take the bus back down to the bottom. Sit in the Bier Garten and enjoy an Andechs Bier.
  • Great place to visit, the hike to the monastery was a beast for us because we were drunk before we started, but we made it, blood sweat and beers. The friendly people, food, beer, and scenery is what it's all about. I hope I'm able to visit again in the future! I highly recommend this experience to everyone!
  • About an hour walk from the train station. Local 🍺 and a very nice scenery around.
