As the sign at the entrance clearly indicates, Klostergasthof Andechs includes a “Wirtsgarten”, meaning it is a restaurant with a garden terrace, not a “real” Bavarian beer garden. The real beer garden can be found across just the road and is referred to here as Kloster Andechs Biergarten. It has the sign “Biergarten” at the entrance.
Klostergasthof Andechs Wirtsgarten has elegant garden furniture shaded by large chestnut trees with waitress serviced tables only. For those who do not know the distinction, any traditional Bavarian beer garden always includes a self-serviced area and typical beer garden benches. All other beer gardens listed on this sites can be considered real Bavarian beer gardens.
Andechs is a popular destination amongst visitors from and around Munich including many tourists from abroad, so the Klostergasthof Andechs Wirtsgarten, as well as Kloster Andechs Biergarten and Kloster Andechs Bräustüberl can get especially busy on weekends. All three venues are within short walking distance of each other.
