The Andechs Monastery, visible from afar on the Holy Mountain above the eastern shore of Lake Ammersee, is the oldest pilgrimage site in Bavaria.
The Benedictines have been in charge of the pilgrimage since 1455. They live according to the Rule of Saint Benedict, which is often put on the short form "ora et labora - pray and work".
