Home of Kloster Andechs

Certainly the biggest draw to this village is the "Holy Mountain" of Andechs, home of Kloster Andechs and its famous beer brewery. But do take some time to enjoy the church and the surrounding landscape before diving into the suds.


While you can get here by bus, I much prefer to walk. The pleasant, tree-lined paths are quite enjoyable... and you get the odd peek at the Ammersee (and sometimes the Alps).

... and, of course, the beer. :-)

And what better way to restore your energy after all that walking than to enjoy some of the world's finest beer. Sit inside the cavernous hall, or outside on the terrace. Fresh food, fresh beer straight from the barrel... what more could you want?

    You got me in the mood for a return to Andechs, Mark. I just might have to make that trek. Prost.

    A pleasant and interesting looking town! Although I know this general area west of Munich, I have never been to Andechs.

    Very detailed and very helpful tips of Andechs especially on transport. As always, it will help us on VT as you did help me on my trip from Hamburg to Copenhagen. Thanks Mark
