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 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

I always loved Andechser beer. Even bought some nearly every week while I was working in Los Angeles at Alpine village, every Friday ;-) What's to say about the monastery: just get there. If you drive, enjoy the scenery around the Ammersee, arrive and walk...More

Situated at the top of a small hill, the church took my breath away. The internal decorations, painted ceilings and cool, calm atmosphere are great to have a rest after the climb. For 1€, we climbed steep, wooden staircases to reach the top of the...More

We spent a day in the area, with about 1 1/2 hours at the monastery and the rest walking along the Ammersee and stopping in the cute little towns along the West coast of the Ammersee. The church is beautiful, both the inside & the...More

We visited Andechs in July, taking a train from Munich to Herrsching, and then hiking the footpath that heads uphill, through some woods and across a meadow (about one hour on foot, 4 km) to the monastery. The monastery church is ornately beautiful, inside, and...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
