Andechs Monastery/ Kloster Andechs was a great day trip. Brochure is available in German, English and Italian. Arrive hungry because there is a well priced restaurant...grab a tray...order/pay at the counter and find a seat. Beer is purchased separately (around the corner). The pork we ordered was by far some of the very best we have ever had...many locals brought... More

Actually it is easy to reach by suburban train the S8 till Herrschling [end of line], then a mellow 30/45 min walk in very pretty woods, At the end historical buildings and my favorite German beer brand with the usual artery clogging Bavarian fare, which happens to taste fantastic. If you want a good reason to get out of Munich... More

My spouse and I along with relatives drove to the Monastery for hike, visit and some lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the drive there. Lunch was very tasty, we had the schnitzel, goulash and white sausages along with a few beers. Food and drink we're great! Church was beautiful, rich with artistry and history. An enjoyable day out. Would recommend this for... More

We decided to take a day trip somewhere from Munich, and read several reviews about this being a good day. Good mix of both walking as well as having a few beers. The walk is about a 45mins to an hour from Herrshing station (the last station on the S8 line from Munich city centre). The monastery itself is very... More

Decided to visit the Andechs Monastery after reading some good reviews on the internet. We wanted a day trip from Munich that wasn't too far to get to. You get the S8 train from Munich to Herrshing which is the end of the line. From there, there is a lovely walk up through the woods to the monastery which is... More

A truly beautiful interior, but in this part of the world there are so many beautiful interiors. Plus we'd just travelled from Salzburg, which rather spoils one ecclesiastically. Had I not had the previous rich diet it would really have been stunning. A very tranquil atmosphere.

If visiting Southern Germany you have Sound of Music dreams, then this is it, with great views, the church is clad in gold and is really just beautiful. There is a beer garden restuarant next door where you can stop and have a cold beer, and some brotzeit

difficult to get there without a car but really worth it! It is an experience to see all these people sitting outside/inside drinking their beer and eating huge plates of roast pig!!
