Visited for lunch and took the opportunity to take in the view from the monastery. The monastery has a nice altar that is quite ornate and also a very interesting chapel. Definitely worth the time to visit. One can also climb up the bell tower and have an exceptional 360 degree view of the valley below. Not for the claustrophobic... More

It was Boxing Day & everything in Munich was closed - so we were advised to try a walk up to Kloster Andechs. It's an easy train ride from Munich & the walk was just what we needed after Christmas. The church was lovely to visit, and the food and beer were great.

Bavaria is known for ornate, rococo churches but Kloster Andechs stands out. Much smaller than Wieskirche or Ettal, for example, the riotous colors and decorative style is more intense. A "must see." And don't pass up the best dark beer in the world just below the church at the Andechs Bierstube.

The monastery sits on a hill and is quite the walk up. The path is cobblestone and the gift shop is halfway up the hill. Tour the church. It is well worth it. The monastery is private, so not able to tour. But there is a biergarten/restaurant just down the hill. It had snowed a little the nightbefore, so the... More

Had been here years ago and always planned to come back. Worth the effort in my opinion. Coming in off-season was nice as easier to look around. Our meal here (self service) was really great. We all had the roast pork loin and a beer. I am not much of a beer drinker, but when in a centuries old Monastery... More

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
