Discover the intersection of fine Baroque architecture and the art of brewing beer at the idyllic Andechs Monastery. Perched atop a hill overlooking Ammer lake, the monastery features an impressive 18th century church. This is the oldest pilgrimage site in Bavaria, as well as a fully functioning brewery. You can take a brewery tour to learn about the monks' brewing tradition. You'll be able to taste the seven varieties of local beer, then have a traditional Bavarian lunch at the onsite restaurant. Wander the grounds to take in the spectacular views of the countryside.

  • Gorgeous church. You go to Tutzing and take bus 958 which drops you at the base of Andechs. A long incline to walk up. It has a tower that has 13 flights of steps for €1.00. Their food opens at 11:00 and they have superb Haxen. Beer is great. Get there before 12:00 or few seats left.
  • Nice touristy place but huge crowds over the weekend. I think the Ettal looks beautiful if you hike around the place. Huge parking.
