Suggested excursions

There's so much to see and do in this area of Bavaria between the Altmühl Valley and the Alps, you'll find it hard to fit into one visit. Sisi's Road lets you explore the life of an extraordinary empress, while no itinerary is complete without a trip to Munich, the state capital. The "Holy Mountain", meanwhile, is both a pilgrimage site and home of the acclaimed Andech brewery.
Sisi's Road
From the Wittelsbacher Land region in Bavaria to Budapest, Sisi's Road stretches around 800 kilometres, linking the places that played a special part in the life of Elisabeth, Empress of Austria and later Queen of Hungary. The route takes you on a fairy-tale ride through wild, romantic landscapes and magnificent stately homes; tempting you with Tokaj wine and cinnamon ice cream – delicacies fit for an empress!
Munich, the state capital of Bavaria, is only around 20 kilometres from Dachau. It's a must-see city where Bavarian traditions go hand in hand with modern attractions – Oktoberfest and opera, Hofbräuhaus beer and the Pinakothek galleries, the German Museum and the Bavaria film studios, BMW and Bayern Munich, Viktualienmarkt square and the Church of Our Lady, the trendy Schwabing district and the English garden, as well as the Olympic Park, great shopping and a whole host of events – boredom doesn't get a look in!
Andechs Abbey
One of the world's best-known pilgrimage sites, Andechs Abbey is located just a few kilometres from Lake Ammersee. The Benedictine monks who founded the abbey 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 meatloaf, it is popular with visitors from all over the world. The Andechs herb garden, meanwhile, is both an educational tool and a showcase for herbs and medicinal plants. Within the walls of the abbey, in the cloister area, there is also a traditional monastery garden, which is still looked after by one of the monks. 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.
