Benediktbeuern is Bavaria’s oldest monastery. It was founded early 8th century and consecrated by St. Bonifaz. During its heydays it was very famous for any kind of education connected to writing and research. After secularisation it had the fate of several other monasteries and was used for military. Luckily the buildings and especially the church were never destroyed. Since approx. 1930 it was bought by Salesians Don Bosco and is now an important centre for any kind of youth work and education, including a university.

But it is not only the monastery which makes this part of Bavaria worth a visit. The mountains of the Alps rise above the village and especially Benediktenwand makes a nice backdrop for photos. Close by is another hidden gem of Bavaria: the Open Air Museum of Glenleiten.
