We went with a group trip. We started by staying at a hotel on the other side of the lake. Then it was a quick little walk down hill to the lake where we took a lovely ferry ride across the lake. The others hiked/walked...More

While I was visiting Munich, some friends of mine recommended taking a trip out to Andechs. I trained from Munich to Herrsching, and then made a hour and a half hour hike to Andechs. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The woods are quiet and peaceful....More

As the monastery is operational the access is restricted, only the magnificent church, shops and canteen. All oh those are highly recommended.

I have some mobility issues and was hesitant to hike to the Monastery. I did do the hike over there and was glad I did. It is a 5k hike climbing up the side of the mountain to get there. We were lost when we...More

I've been coming to this place since I was a little girl. They're pork is the best. The beer is brewed right there and is blessed by the monks. What more could you ask for. If you are in Bavaria this is definitely a place...More

We visited the Andechs Abbey Brewery near Munich a couple of years ago. It’s about 1.5 hrs. by train from Munich. It’s a short walk from the train station. There is a beautiful church and garden there. The highlight of course is the brewery. The...More

If you go onto the MVV website all you need do is search for MVV-Regionalbus 951 Herrsching timetable and you'll see when busses run from Herrsching to Andechs (Kloster).

You should be able to take your dog; I've seen them outside in the beer garden (and bowls for them to drink water from too). Not sure about the bus - you might have to walk from the train station but that's not difficult and... More
