Ettal Monastery

Bavarian Brotzeit and Ettal Monastery

Your first stop will be a short stroll to the Ettal Monastery to see the exquisite Basilica.   After learning about the almost 700 year old history behind the monastery we will have a behind the scenes visit of the Basilica.  The tour will also be given access to the new Ettal Brewing museum.  Our tour will spend our time here learning about the history of the brewery and sampling a few of the different schnapps the monks have become famous for.  

We will then visit the "Schaukäserei" in the beautiful Ammergauer Alps.  At this cheese factory, you will discover how local farmers make cheese and other delicious dairy products. You will be given an opportunity to purchase different cheese items to go, as well as cold beer for the walk back to the monastery.  The tour will then make a stop in 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 decor.

When you get back to Edelweiss Resort, stop by Zuggy's Base Camp or Pullman Place and try their locally brewed beer and liquors.
