Andechs Monastery

The first pilgrimages to Andechs were way back in 1138 and it continues to be a a right of passage for Munich residents and adventurous tourists. If the weather is right it's a nice day trip to the swanky Starnberg area.

While the church is quite a sight Andechs attracts many visitors that not only pay a visit to the Benedictine monastery, but to sample the beer which has brewed since 1455. If you end up going by S-bahn be prepared to hoof it for about an hour before being able to praise the Lord for that fantastic beer.

Let's not forget the cheese. The Andechser Stinkakaas is amazing. Goes well with the beer.
