“Gorgeous, short steep walk from parking lot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Monks still brew the famous Andechser there. Enjoy it with a braised Schweinshaxe and Sauerkraut after you tour the monastery. Great view of the Ammersee and Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge. Wonderful gift shop, wax and wood carvings, books etc.

I would recommend every traveler to Munich stop here (if you don't mind walking up hill). Food, company and drink were very enjoyable.

“Great site for a pilgrimage!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

A friend and I walked from Starnbergersee to Ammersee with an afternoon stop at Andechs, where we enjoyed a couple of fantastic beers and conflation with a group of local folks. Memorable and scenic!
