If you wish to make an organised group pilgrimage to our monastery on the Holy Mountain, we recommend an early booking on 08152-376-309.
You can also request contacts with other pilgrim groups. Today, we welcome about 30,000 pilgrims every year from over 130 pilgrim communities, some of whom have completed a day’s march of over fifty kilometres. We shall be pleased to help you make contact with the other pilgrim groups. Call us on 08152-376-309.
The monastery offers our guests two double rooms and fifteen single rooms for overnight stays. We regret that the monastery’s guest wing cannot accommodate single guests or groups between early May and the end of July owing to the large number of pilgrimages to the Holy Mountain and the Carl Orff Festival. The rooms are then in high demand from the Jacobean pilgrims, so we recommend contacting us in good time. Although fairly recent since 2003, the Way of St James in Munich has been enjoying a steadily growing number of pilgrims. The area around the Holy Mountain also provides a great many overnight options.
The orientation plan lets you find your way quickly and easily around the extensive monastery grounds.
From July to October, the pilgrimage church on the highest peak of the Holy Mountain is the venue for free presentations on the history of the Holy Mountain (guided tours).
Pilgrims have been coming to see the Andechs relics since the first third of the twelfth century.
Situated a little below the church, the monastery shop offers a wide range of religious ethnic art, traditional waxwork, and books on pilgrimage tradition. A special range of offers is also available at our online shop.
Benedictine hospitality also includes the Andechs Bräustüberl tavern. Its expansive terraces invite guests to partake in a decent meal. Here you can treat yourself to delicacies from the monastery butcher’s (Klostermetzgerei), our cream cheese specialities, and – of course – a palatable Andechs monastery beer fresh from the keg – or, if you prefer, an Andechs soft drink.
