Private Tour: Munich Sightseeing Including Andechs Monastery
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Andechs is a functioning monastery and brewery, and has been a pilgrimage destination since the 15th century. It is famous for housing many important Catholic relics including some of Charles the Great. It is about an hour outside of Munich but worth the drive.

The beer is really good, and the food offered traditional beer hall fare. A short walk up the hill brings you to the chapel. The chapel is a beautiful baroque masterpiece, and the Benedictine services here are very traditional and pious. Many still make the pilgrimage to the church on foot.

The church itself is reason enough to visit. If you want to see the relics you must make arrangements and be able to understand the German narration.

During the summer this place is packed, but if you can visit I personally highly recommend it.

It's a bit of a way away with the S-bahn to Herrsching, but a nice walk to the Monastery and the beer is great. They have really good food there too, so come hungry!They have an outside area beergarden which is lovely (if weather permits).

I really enjoyed this day trip just outside of Munich. I went with a tour group and we sat outside in the biergarten and enjoyed very good Schweinhaxe and beers. The views of the Alps are beautiful and the monastery was quite nice too.

Took the S bahn to the last stop on the S 8. Proceeded to hike trough the woods in the snow for about 90 minutes. There is a bus option for those not looking to hike through the hills. Beer is great and the food is reasonably priced. Door to Monastery and return you will need at least 4 hours. Make the trip.
