Also a great monastery (cloister) brewery in Ettal, just outside Oberammergau on the way to Garmisch. Those monks make my favorite Hefeweizen and it is quite reasonably priced. You can get a mini keg for under 10 Euro at the monastery's beer shop.

My. God. How did I miss this?

Only 4 weeks from my first ED, and the list has already started for ED #2.

Rolf LOVES Andechs (he and Peter took me there totally jetlagged one time) and I love Kloster Ettal.

Both worth a visit.

Looking forward to it tomorrow. Lunched at Augistiner today in downtown Munich and was not impressed with their pig knuckle. Hauxenbauer does it better.

We went to Andechs and really enjoyed the experience. The Wiener Schnitzel and pretzel that we had there were one of the best we had during our ED. Their Double Bock is also quite tasty!

Picked up car this morning, got gas then drove it to Andechs. lots of stop and go with plenty of traffic mixed in. Good trip to get used to your new BMW. Also good to get used to your Nav system.

I've never been to Andechs but have to make it there one of these trips. Your pictures are fantastic. Is it true that you have to do a major uphill hike to get there?

Went to Andechs in March. It's an uphill climb but I wouldn't call it a major one. Worth it for the beer and food.

No, these are the opening times of the monastery reception. As long as you dont want to become a monk, you better check out the restaurant "Ludwig der Bayer" just across the street, opens daily from 7am to 10pm...

I've been to Kloster Andechs twice but both times were in the winter when the outdoor beer garden was closed. However, the beer and pretzels were still good in the restaurant! I'd love to go there in the summer and sit outdoors while enjoying the beer.

Isn't it funny how they are always the ultimate decider? Even superseding the word of the monks. I never had to deal with any religious stuff on my visits to Ettal, but a very friendly friar works in the little monastery beer shop and the less friendly ones work across the street at the religious bookstore.

Ludwig der Bayer looks like a really great hotel. Too bad it's always booked whenever we've tried to stay there (usually the Christmas holidays). But there are plenty of very nice, comfortable accommodations just down the road in Oberammergau.

We are planning a year ahead for next June. So far ahead we have to wait a few weeks for June 2016 to come up in reservations lists.

All I know is those monks really know how to make beer. Same for 600 years of Leffe in Belgium.
