We decided to walk to the monastery from Herrsching. Give yourself plenty of time. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and be ready for inclines. It takes about an hour from town and is worth the climb if you can do it, a lovely wooded walk. You will meet many along the way, going and coming. You will be ready... More

To be honest the monastery and accompanying area was much bigger than I expected. There are two different restaurants - both serve traditional Bavarian food and of course lots of beer - as well as a beer garden for smaller snacks and more beer. We walked around the church and up to the tower. Very tight climb and not for... More

There's a nice trail you can hike up to the brewery and have food and beer. The monastery is great, nothing is leveled and seems like you have to work out for your prize. The view is amazing and as long as it's not raining I would go anytime of the year. A nice spot to get "out of town"... More

I wish I had known more about this so this last trip was not my first visit to the area. Definitely worth at least a... More

We took the S Bahn to Herrshing and got off the train. We were not able to get the bus so we took a cab $13 euros. The restaurant is great sat inside as is was chilly outside. The Catholic Church is the most beautiful I have ever seen. If you are in Munich take half a day and visit,... More

Although the food is served cafeteria style, it was delicious. The beer was my favorite in our two weeks in Germany. When we returned to Munich, we made sure to stop at Andechs am Dom to sample some more. I was interested in the history of the monastery, but we missed the English speaking tour.

We enjoyed our time here. I don't think it's a "must," but it was fun! The monestary was beautiful and it was fun to enjoy the brewery as well!
