schäftlarn abbey

on our way back to munich from such a beautiful weekend in the bavarian alps in hammersbach (GaPa), the best of all wives and me have visited the the schäftlarn abbey for lunch and for sightseeing. the weather was nice, so we walked a little bit around and then took a break in monastery's restaurant.
the benedictines monastery schäftlarn abbey was founded by waltrich in 762. 
today have the monks a forestry, destillery, beekeeping, restaurant, guesthouse and there is a high school (eight-year gymnasium), too
