Some friends that we have met in Garmisch told us that it is worthwhile to visit this Monastery. Truly this Abbey lies on a hill south of Munich and it is very famous for its Baroque church but mainly for its brewery. That is why...More

We opted to take the hike up to the Andechs Monastery (there is a bus that will take you there) and loved every minute of it. We apparently took a wrong turn somewhere and wound up hiking through the forest. It was beautiful! When we...More

We visited Andechs Monastery on a beautiful day in late October. We took the S-Bahn from Munich and got off at Herrsching. We chose to take the 951 bus directly to the monastery (Andechs Kloster stop). We got there early so there were very few...More

Go for the view and the historic church, stay for the beer and the pork. The setting cannot be beat and all of the food and beer are top notch.

An awe-inspiring church with an abundance of baroque decor (you have to like it!). There are also some very nice walking paths around the monastery.

Take a break from all the serious sight seeing and go visit the monastery which has a brewery and restaurant attached. Good beer...good food and great sweets! And the monastery is just what it is...a monastery...

We stopped because we learned about it from a travel show and it's a good half-way point to Oberammagau. I wouldn't specifically pay for a tour here, but it's a good stop if you're heading to the mountains of Bavaria. Great old place, but not...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
