Kloster Andechs sits across the highway from a lake. It is surrounded by grazing grounds for dairy cattle, and the Alps sit off to the horizon in the South. Take a seat, and just look around. No matter the time of year, the scenery is beautiful.
DON'T drink too much. You will either see Jesus, or lose several hours of your life (or like the author, both!)
Andechs has been brewing beer for a thousand years. They have perfected the art. Enjoy both the light and dark beer, preferably with a few pretzels and mustard.
