  • Definitely worth seeing. Very nice area. The beer is great and the food as well. Locations is crowded with tourists of course.
  • A great mid-morning to afternoon day trip. The riverboat ride offers very nice scenery and the Abbey itself is very charming. The in house restaurant offered some of the best Bavarian dishes I had while in Germany. Not to mention the beer, I guess when you've been doing something since the year 1050 you've probably ironed out the kinks, and let me say that they certainly know how to produce a good brew.
  • Beer was well good Food was average Cool place
  • good place to see
