Bernkastel-Kues Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 19 photos

 
 

This Monastery is located just 7km's from Bernkastel Kues.

In 1084, there was evidence that there was a Monastery here.
The actual foundation took place in 1238 in which it was added as a convent in the Order of Cistercians of the Association.

Over the year's, the Monastery was used less, until in 1793, when there were only 6 Nun's and an Abbess left. Eventually, it was left to deteriorate.

Luckily, in 1969 it was bought and then renovated for current use and made available to the public. It now houses recreational facilities, restaurants and a museum.
