Such a great destination. We went on Easter Sunday, crossing our fingers that they’d be open. The place was packed. Barely 50 degrees and raining off-and-on, but there were thousands there to enjoy everything this place has to offer. We did Easter mass, and then went to the Klostergasthof for lunch and had four different beers of their’s on tap. The food was fantastic, by the way. Afterwards, we had some more beer at the Bräustüberl in its big beer garden. Got some beer to bring back home and a nice glass as well. Highly recommended.

A beautiful place located a good hour walk from Herrsching. Great ambiance, great beer, great food. Self-service or serviced, depending which of the 3 places you choose. Worth a visit, and worth the small hike up.
Famous Bavarian brewery situated about 40 km on south-west from Munich. Huge space inside and also huge bier garden outside with awesome view of Alps. Brilliant malty Dunkel Doppelbock! Must try if in Bayern.
A beautiful place on top of a mountain. The brewery makes some nice beers. The food is great, pork knuckle haxn, etc, the desserts are awesome. The views are beautiful. The church is beautiful inside. Self service on most things here. Definitely worth a visit, though it is not easy to get to.
Went on a Sunday, LOTS of people visiting. The monastery didn’t quite look like I expected it to do, but it was a nice trip. The beers are great of course and the food was decent. Great atmosphere though.
A big Bräustüberl in a great envinronment. Easy to find place with a huge parking lot. Very popular on a Tuesday midday. Fast service. 4 beers available: Hell, Dunkelbock, Weißbier & Radler plus Russ ’n Halbe and Apfelweisse.
Great day trip visit to the kloster after the lake nearby. The gift store has some cool stuff and the view at the top of the hill by the church is pretty nice. The food in the biergarten is excellent. The beef jowel salad is fantastic on a hot day, the pork ribs were cooked to perfection and required no sauce, and the steckerlfisch while pretty expensive was awesome. As for the beer, i had a mass of the doppelbock dunkel which was plenty for the afternoon.
Upon reading several reviews, I decided to take a day off from Munich & visit Kloster Andechs. I am really glad that I did so. To begin with, as fellow beer lovers have said, please do consider the hiking trail to the Kloster. You come across some lovely views. Upon arrival to the Kloster after a 4km hike uphill, head in to taste the weissbier. I confess that I drank it in just a few minutes. It just felt being rewarded for the hike . Like many German beer gardens, there is a lot of seating space here. The restaurant, or I would say canteen works on a self service principle. But the service was fast. As for the selection they had a good part of their beers available on tap. The food was yummy especially the sausages & Schweinshaxe accopanied by the Dunkel was heavenly. The food & beers were priced resonably according to a beer garden standards. Upon relishing some fine food & beers, do not miss out on visiting the church & if possible go up the bell tower.(1 euro for entry). Overall a good detour when in Munich.
