Very enjoyable place to visit and relax.
Well, you've been lucky that apparently there weren't too many people there during your stay (were you there during the week?). On sunny weekends, normally Kloster Andechs is packed full with tourists!
BTW, this place is often the destination of our bike trips (Andechs is about 30 km away - as one of Sarumans crows fly
). Usually only one-way, 'cause if we had one or two beers too many, we'd rather take the S-Bahn (from Herrsching) back home.
I think it was on a weekday. But even then it was quite busy.
Each tent holds it's own beer brand.
with a slightly different decor
(why is there a hitler on a cloud? LOL )
As time progresses towards night, during songs a lot of folks stand up and dance on long table's benches.
And of course there is beer.
And more beer.
The only downside to this festivity was extremely crowded and hot tents with militant looking dudes that were always eager to push you. Service was lightning fast and very good. A LOT of eye candy. And beef of course.
