The onion domes of the oldest monastery in Upper Bavaria greet you from afar with the baroque basilica of St. Benedict and the Rococo-decorated Anastasia chapel. Even today, the place is considered the spiritual and cultural center of the Tölzer Land.
The basilica is the current Catholic parish church and is definitely worth a visit. The organ built in 1682 is worth seeing. But also the herb and especially the beer garden are definitely worth a stop;)

Nice day trip over Königsdorf, Bad Heilbrunn to the monastery Benediktbeuern. After a break in the monastery beer garden return over Penzberg, Beuerberg, Eurasburg along the Loisach Canal to Gelting. From Gelting on the bike path to Geretsried (total distance about 60 km). Wonderful views and nice places for a stopover.

He often gives exhibitions in the monastery and you should marvel at this church and organ and not just sit in the beer garden. The Bräustüberl offers in summer
Bavarian music and very good food. Hiking through the moor is a pleasure in every season. Herzogstand and Heimgarten say hello in the "blue country"

The more than 1,250-year-old Benedictine monastery Benediktbeuern, on the edge of the Loisach-Kochelsee moor in the middle of the Bavarian Alpine foothills, combines tradition and progress in a special way.
The Salesians Don Boscos, a Catholic religious order that has worked for young people worldwide in the spirit of its founder Johannes Bosco (1815-1888), have been active here since 1930. The Benediktbeuern Monastery is today a regionally important spiritual center that unites numerous institutions of theoretical and practical work with young people under one roof.
The baroque complex annually attracts many people interested in art and culture from near and far. In the area of the monastery and its surroundings there are numerous visits and tours, including natural history tours of the Center for Environment and Culture.
