Byl jsem zde snad 10x.....od roku 1982. Dříve úžasné místo na "Svatém kopečku", s výhledem na pole, plné pasoucích se kraviček...idylické místo.

Previously, an amazing place on "Holy Hill" overlooking the field, full of grazing kraviček ... an idyllic place. On the weekend, this picturesque place changed to a tourist, mass action, which brings the noise, a lot of garbage, the inability to park your car. ... The last time already cancelled the idyllic and a new phenomenon: the opposing views of the Muslim community, completely uncontrolled Syrian children and the amount of "sellers" .... probably from Romania.
Great views, great food, great beer. They say you need to try the pork knuckle when you visit Bavaria, and this place had the best pork knuckle I had the whole time I was there. Their beer is a great value and they have all the standard Bavarian styles
Only an hour and a bit ride with S-Bahn from Munich and you reach the Andechs Monastery. Enjoy the great view from the hill-top, and the beautiful painted ceiling of the church. Then have a feast at the beer garden. They have the best pork dishes (roast pork & pork knuckle), and beer for really good price.
Nice scenary and area. The beer garden and restaurant was really great.
The Andechs Monastery was a great afternoon trip from Munich (easily reached via the S-Bahn and bus). Delicious beer brewed on site and served at the cute little beer garden. Take a stroll (respectfully) through the beautiful abbey and surrounding property.
A perfect place to enjoy culture, nature, and some fine German beer!
