We went with friends for a look round. Fantastic old church and monastery. The food is excellent in the cafe but go hungry. The portions were huge. Try the pork knuckle.

An afternoon visiting Andechs for the monastery and the views is definitely a wonderful activity. Enjoying a beer or two along with supper at Andechs will just round out an already fun experience. This is Bavaria at its best. The "beer hall" is lively and...More

Monastery beer on a high hill overlooking German fields and country homes. An idyllic place to rest, relax and explore what Bavaria is all about. Brush up on your German before ordering food or beer here; while it's a tourist spot, it is quintessentially German.

As a brewer, I have made many visits to this area with friends and family when visiting Bavaria. The history, food and beverages coming out of Andechs is superior in every way to anything we have back home in Australia. Highly recommend an English tour...More

Easy to come here from Munich (S-bahn and bus). Here is beautiful church and great views. We found little shop and brewery. In the beer house I enjoy pint of dobbelbock beer, which was good. There is also beergarden and gasthaus.
