The Andechs Trail is a trail running event held in the Freistaat Bayern (Free State of Bavaria) in Germany.

It offers two challenging races which are run over a hilly route, mostly on trails and gravel roads through woods and farmland:

  • ca. 8.4km Beginner Trail
  • ca. 15km Expert Trail

The start and the finish are at Kloster Andechs (Andechs Abbey), a Benedictine abbey built on top of a hill (the ‘Holy Mountain’):

Located 40 kilometres south-west of München (Munich), the abbey is an important pilgrimage site, not only for Christians but also for beer lovers. The monks of Andechs have more than 600 years of brewing experience, and a range of locally produced beers can be sampled at the abbey's ‘Bräustüberl’.

Entries are limited, and you can expect the race to fill up very quickly.
