The Kloster Andechs Biergarten is located within the Andechs monastery about 40km south west of the centre of Munich. This small but often crowded beer garden is usually visited in combination with the famous Kloster Andechs, which is historically known for its beer brewing monks.
The beer garden is partly shaded by chestnut trees and sun-umbrellas. A mixture of locals, tourist, school classes often arrive in groups and make this a lively and mixed crowd beer garden. It is unusual to see anyone bring their own home cooked meals, perhaps because most visitors do not come from Bavaria are not necessarily aware of the custom. The Andechs beer garden management is however not at odds with Bavarian tradition and so to bring one's own food is always allowed and not discouraged in anyway. The self service food stall offers a selection of typical Bavarian cold and hot meals, and of course, the Andechs' famous beer brewed at location is served fresh from the tap.
A fish stall offers Steckerlfisch (grilled fish-on-stick) prepared to perfection by a dedicated cook using fresh traut from a small lake in the nearby alps topped with 19 different herbs and spices from an organic garden at Andechs. At €20 (about twice the price of a Steckerlfisch in any other beer gardens) this is no ordinary Steckerlfish! Other offerings at the food stall including the beer are moderately priced. The available beer types are Spezial Hell and Bergbock Hell (lagers) at €5.80 p/Maß, Weissbier Dunkel (Bavarian wheat-beer) at €3.20 p/pint and Doppelbock Dunkel at €6.80 p/Maß (the extra strong dark lager variety).
There is no serviced area at this beer garden. Instead, a serviced and more formal Wirtsgarten Klostergasthof Andechs part of the Andechs property can be found across the court yard. Additionally, Kloster Andechs Bräustüberl is a self-serviced restaurant and beer terrace located on the hilltop just above the beer garden which offers some great views of the surrounding landscape. This is where most people go.
The beer garden is open on weekdays when the weather is good from 10am until 6pm and on weekends until 8pm. The seasonal opening period depends on the weather but usually lasts from easter until end October or early November.
