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

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
