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.

Some friends that we have met in Garmisch told us that it is worthwhile to visit this Monastery. Truly this Abbey lies on a hill south of Munich and it is very famous for its Baroque church but mainly for its brewery. That is why...More
