Ettal Abbey – Stockach Germany

Departing Bad Bayersoein at 10am we headed towards the Alpine region of Bavaria through valley’s with villages and snow capped mountains.

We passed into Bavaria and stopped in the village of Ettal.

Spent some time in the lovely Ettal Abbey. (Kloster Ettal). Ettal Abbey is a Benedictine monastery in the village of Ettal. This basilica stood out to us as one of the prettiest as it had light streaming in through the glass windows and lighter coloured paintings and were more cheery to gaze upon.

Ettal Abbey was founded on 28 April 1330, Saint Vitalis of Milan‘s day, by Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian in the Graswang valley, in fulfilment of an vow, on his return from his coronation in Rome, on a site of strategic importance on the primary trade route between Italy and Augsburg.

Spent time in the local tourist stalls where Steven bought Trish a purple warm winter hat to add to her collection. Here you can purchase different designed beer steins or different empty beer bottles with famous branded Austrian beer labels.

The monastery runs a brewery, a distillery, a bookstore, an art publishing house, a hotel, a cheese factory joint venture, and several smaller companies. The distillery produces Ettaler Kloster Liqueur, a herbal liqueur which, like that of the Carthusian monks, comes in sweeter yellow and more herbal green varieties

Proceeded on our journey back into Germany???????to the Schloss Linderhof Palace which is one of many of Ludwig 11’s places
