Both aesthetes and lovers of good drinks, and fans of the legends will enjoy being in the Benedictine monastery Ettal. Aesthetes will be stricken by the baroque monastery church on the dodecagonal basis with luxurious paintings and gold-trimmed organ. Lovers of good drinks will wish to taste monastery liqueur still with the same medieval recipes. The drink is made from 40 alpine herbs with spring water.
The monastery also runs a little cheese factory, which processes three thousand liters of milk every day to make cheese and yogurt! The fans of legends will like the version of the origin of the monastery: it is believed that Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria, returning from Italy, vowed to build the world's most beautiful monastery in the place, where his horse would genuflect three times, which happened right here - on Augsburg - Venice trade route.
