  • Beautiful place. The view, the Church and the surrounding area is very worthwhile! But the hint: comfortable shoes and breath are needed!

  • Fantastic Andechs Castle, suggests a sense of peace and tranquility. Accessible by train from Munich's city centre, where you can see a fantastic scenery, before heading to this beautiful town. The Castle you can visit the grave of the famous Carl Orff and stop at the restaurant where I tasted pork shank and the beer tastes better in assultuto parish.

  • Bavaria is known for ornate, rococo churches but Kloster Andechs stands out. Much smaller than Wieskirche or Ettal, for example, the riotous colors and decorative style is more intense. A "must see." ...  more »

  • 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!
