Ettal Monastery

Schnapps Tour

Buried in the heart of the Ammergau Valley exists the Ettal Monastery.  Enjoy a short walk to see the exquisite Basilica. You will learn about the almost 700 years of history that has taken place here in Ettal. Your guide will take you behind the scenes to explore the monastery and get a close up view of the famous Ettal Madonna. We will then visit the newly designed brewing museum to learn about the art of beer making in Bavaria and the over 400 year old brewery at Ettal. Here you will be able to sample various liquors and schnapps made locally by the monks. From the monastery you will take a short walk to the cheese factory where you will discover how local farmers make cheese and other delicious dairy products. At the cheese factory you will have an opportunity to buy different dairy products to go, that are made fresh daily. You will then visit the monastery shop where you can purchase some of the Monks’ famous home-made beers and liqueurs. Your final stop will be at an Ettaler woodcarving shop to purchase beautiful crafts and décor.
