Visit to Castle Neuschwanstein

One of Bavaria's most storied gems is Neuschwanstein castle, Mad King Ludwig's vision quest that the King never got to see finished.

A visit to Neuschwanstein is a must for anyone traveling to Munich.

Andechs Monastery

One of the world's best-known pilgrimage sites. The Benedictine monks are self-sufficient thanks to their brewery. In the town itself, the monks run a terraced brewery restaurant. Serving dishes such as skewered fish and Leberkäs, a fine-grained Bavarian meat loaf, it is popular with visitors from all over the world.

Andechs Monastery

The Andechs herb garden, meanwhile, is both an educational tool and a showcase for herbs and medicinal plants. Today, the former carpentry workshop houses a distillery that produces a liqueur called "Abbey Bees from the Holy Mountain", made with Williams Christ pears and honey from the on-site apiary.
