950 years living Monastery

Benedictine monastery

01 / 03

Dear readers
and readers!


Our Benedictine monastery was founded in 1074 – a long history; but a young, Christian, contemporary spirit thrives within our walls.


Seeking God with the message and person of Jesus Christ and the mindset of St Benedict is the foundation on which we stand and thus want to be there for the people of our time: in church, through social work, through education, culture and in the economy.
