Abbey Andechs and the “Heiliger Berg” (Sacred Mountain) in Bayern/Germany is a favourite day-trip destination for many München inhabitants. Upon it sits the abbey of Andechs a millennium-old Benedictine monastery and church. The place of pilgrimage rises above the lovely Ammer see (Lake Ammer) about 40 kilometres south-west of central Munich. But the main reason for going there is the 3,500-seat beer garden and restaurant which surround the church. The monk-brewed libration is considered one of Germany’s finest. To top it off, there are great views of the lake and surrounds from the top of the hill. All in all it’s an excellent spot to while away an afternoon.

But approaching Easter, the highlight is not only visiting of the “Bräustüberl” famous brewery restaurant and listening one of Karl Orff’s organ concert in the Church but the main attraction is the Easter egg market (Ostereier markt ) where each year genuine eggs are exhibited that have been blown clean and decorated exquisitely in a variety of ways. On first of April egg artisans will fill the Andechs hall with their booths, each displaying eggs of a distinct style. Their hand work is always incredible.
