Had a great time at the Monestary. We were there in February so there was only one other couple visiting. The Monestary was beautiful and the food and beer were great. We bought some great items in the gift store. Me took a taxi from Munich and we are very glad we made the journey, well worth the cab fare.

I was really excited to see this place based on reviews and photos but when we got there the parking lot was jammed packed with cars. The church was nice but all the info was in german so you didn't know the history. The food was overpriced and served in mass cafeteria form. The beer was good and so were... More

About 30 miles or so south/southwest of Munich is a gem of a Monastery that spans centuries in a town called Andechs. It is not the longest of stops, but plenty worthwhile to witness the history and beauty of the ambiance. Beyond the written history there are further signs of its age as behind closed gates are candles of all... More

Got the S8 train from pasing station to herrsching station and a short bus ride to bottom of hill. The Monastery is beautiful inside and the views are lovely but the best bit was the beer and pork knuckles! Very busy but we found somewhere to sit. Very impressed, food simple but the pork crackling was the best we have... More

Great food/drink (they make beer, cheese, pork). It's a beautiful monastery. The town is very sleepy, so I don't recommend staying more than one night. There are a lot of nice B&Bs there

The hike took longer than we expected to make it up the mountain.......but the beer at the top is so worth it. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was packed with locals and a few bands. Its really something special to experience. And you can see the beautiful countryside from there. My husband and I are young... More
