Nice monastery with brewery nearby. Huge parking space available. Better to visit out of weekends due to really big traffic of tourists. Chappel equiped with many historical artifacts. Huge brewery restaurant with local specialties - pork knee and beer.

The monastery is just beautiful. You can walk around and get into the church for free. Directly down the hill is enough parking space. Definitely a perfect photo spot!

If you arrive early in Munich, 6-7 am, drive first to Freising for breakfast but if you arrive after 10 am, drive directly to Andechs and tour the grounds and church, and have lunch....WELCOME to Bavaria and on to Blaue Gams in Ettal.

We are visiting Starnberg and thought we'd check this Monastery and of course the beer! Great beer and the Crispy Pork Belly was so good! My gf is vegetarian and she loved the potato salad and the coleslaw. As a typical Bavarian pub I'd say.
