The beer garden is partly shaded by sun-umbrellas and chestnut trees. A mix of locals, tourist, school classes and other visitors often arrive in groups and make this a lively and mixed crowd beer garden.
It is unsual to see anyony bring their own food, perhaps due to the many tourists who do not come from Bavaria and are not necessarily aware of the local custom. The Andech beer garden is however well in tune with Bavarian traditions so to bring one's own food is not discouraged in anyway. The self service food stall offers a selection of typical Bavarian cold and hot meals, and of course, the Andechs' beer brewed at location and served freshly from the tap. A fish stall offers Steckerlfisch (grilled fish-on-stick) prepared with pride and passion by a dedicated cook using freshly cought traut from the Beeringsee alpine lake , topped with organically grown herbs from a spice garden within the Andechs monastery. At €20 p/fish, approximately twice that of Steckerlfisch in any other beer garden, this is no ordinary Steckerlfish , and to prove the point there's no shortage of orders! Other menu items at the food stall including the beer are normally priced.
There is no serviced area at this beer garden. A serviced and more formal Wirtsgarten which is also part of Andech's offering can be found across the road.
