The Basics

Visitors explore the Andechs Monastery on a self-guided basis, usually focusing first on the pilgrimage church. While the monastery boasts a 1,000-year-history, the church was constructed in the 1400s before being remodeled in baroque style in the 1700s. View its onion-shaped spire before its Rococo interior: a swirl of frescoes and gilded columns. Afterward, head for the monastery’s centuries-old tavern to enjoy its home-brewed beer, traditional local cooking, and scenic outdoor terraces.

While many people visit Andechs Monastery independently from Munich, make things easy on a private tour that can cover both the abbey and the city’s highlights on an itinerary tailored to you. Choosing a tour provides the advantage of a guide for insight into Andechs’ history and door-to-door private transport to eliminate travel worries.

How to Get There

Located southwest of Munich, the Andechs Monastery is easily accessible from the city. S-Bahn trains depart regularly from Munich Central Station to two nearby towns—Starnberg and Herrsching—taking about 30 or 50 minutes respectively. Frequent buses to the monastery run from both stations, although some people hire cabs or make the 1-hour walk. Drivers should follow the A96 from Munich before taking Exit 31 towards Herrsching.

Andechs Monastery Highlights

While you’re at Andechs, be sure to climb the monastery’s onion-domed “zwiebelturm” tower. While there’s a small fee and the stairway is steep and narrow, you’re rewarded with fabulous countryside views that, on a clear day, extend to the Bavarian Alps. Conclude with your choice of monastery beers and dishes such as delicious pork knuckle on the tavern’s open-air terrace.
