Klostergasthof Andechs is a restaurant with a terrace within the Andechs monastery grounds. It is strictly speaking not a “real” Bavarian beer garden but a “Wirtsgarten”. The real Andechs beer garden can be found right across the road from Klostergasthof Andechs and is referred to on this website as Kloster Andechs Biergarten.
Klostergasthof Andechs Wirtsgarten has elegant garden furniture shaded by large chestnut trees with waitress serviced tables only. For those who are not familiar with the distinction, a traditional Bavarian beer garden always includes a self-serviced area with typical beer garden benches. All other beer gardens listed on this site are traditional Bavarian beer gardens. Note the “Biergarten” sign at the entrance of the Andechs beer garden vs. the “Wirtsgarten” sign by the Klostergasthof entrance.
Andechs is a popular destination amongst day-visitors from and around Munich as well as tourists from abroad. The Klostergasthof Andechs Wirtsgarten, as well as Kloster Andechs Biergarten and Kloster Andechs Bräustüberl can get especially busy on weekends. All three locations are within short walking distance of each other.
