The Ähndl is located right next to the Ramsachkircherl - as the small baroque church of St. George in Murnauer Moos is called. Its founding is legendarily going back to the 8th century. The iron bell from the 6th century was probably used by Scottish monks in the country. It is considered one of the oldest church bells in Europe.
The Ähndl itself is a tavern with a beautiful beer garden and a fantastic view of the Murnauer Moos.

Information board of the meditation path:
"The Ramsachkircherl, affectionately called 'Ähndl' in the vernacular, is said to be the oldest church in Upper Bavaria, probably founded in the 7th century by St. Mang.
Christianization began in southern Bavaria as early as the 3rd and 4th centuries through preaching wandering monks. The first hermitages arose, later churches and monasteries were founded. According to ancient traditions, there is said to have been a Celtic cult here when an Irish-Scottish wandering monk settled down. It was said earlier that the old altar stone and three stone steps should still come from this time. An ossuary used to belong to the churchyard, which is enclosed with a wall. In 1634, when the plague raged in Murnau, many dead were carried here for burial. "
