The Bräustüberl is continuously expanding its environmental engagement within the EMAS certification framework to make gastronomy on the Holy Mountain even more sustainable.

Our monastic gastronomy follows EMAS standards because we are convinced that environmental protection and resource conservation are closely related to constancy – a special characteristic of Benedictine spirituality.

Environmental protection and hospitality closely linked

When a monastic community ties itself to a place like Andechs over the course of generations, it assumes a special responsibility to treat creation with care.

For a large restaurant to obtain EMAS certification at all remains an exception in Germany. According to the EMAS register (as of July 2017), the Bräustüberl is one of just 60 gastronomy operations in all of Bavaria to undergo this highly demanding environmental audit.

The Bräustüberl has been meeting these environmental standards for more than 15 years. Consideration for the environment and conservation of its limited resources are firmly anchored in its operation.
