My husband and I took the train from Munich to Herrshing then hiked up to Andechs. It was a beautiful walk that let us see more of the countryside but it was a steady uphill hike so you have lots of time or you can take public transit right to the monastery. We were well rewarded with great food, beer... More

I'll be honest, I went for the beer. We took the train from Munich, very easy relaxing ride. It was a rainy cool day, so we just ate, drank and went on our way. The beer was good, but a little disappointing, our lunch was good, have the potato salad and try the sauerkraut, both are delicious.

Not only did I grow up going to Andechs about every other weekend, but every time I go back to the "old country" I have to go and have a beer. The Monks make the best beer, cheese & sausages. The history of the monastery is very interesting (and very old history). You can buy Andechs beer in the bottle... More

Went there for a business dinner. Location is nice but the service was really slow and poor. Ordering takes a while and when you eventually get served by the dedicted waiter (1 for 16 guests) it tkaes ages to be served. I ordered a bottle a wine before the main course and got it 5 minutes after I finished my... More

Andechs brews the best Bavarian beer! There are still Monks in the monastery producing beer, cheese, and meat products - the food is all organic and delicious. The beer has a refeeshing taste...much better from the tap than from the bottles you can buy. It gets pretty crowded in the beergarden and restaurants on a nice weather day. Lots of... More

This is a Our third time for visiting Andechs. Our first visit was 20 years ago. The outdoor beer garden has really expanded over the last 20 years. The indoors area is essentially the same. We recommend you stay at the Hotel in town I. Order to be in walking distance - the beer is best by the liter and... More

This is our second visit to Andechs. This time we biked there from Herrsching - about 4.5 km - uphill! The route was really lovely through a wood, partially on Tarmac and partially on a gravel type path. Really beautiful We didn't visit the church this time but it is worth a visit. Beer great - I had the beer... More

We went up the steep hill for the traditional beergarten, but got stuck halfway up the hill, cause there was a very nice restaurant with beergarten on the left hand side.The lovely beergarden behind the restaurant served excellent food and drinks with a georgious view..

I live in Abu Dhabi and was visiting a friend in Munich. We took the train to the end of the line and hiked up to the monastery on a cool, overcast day. Coming from the desert it was lush and refreshing, exactly what I needed. We got a bit lost, but arrived with no issues. On a nice autumn... More
