Zisterzienzerkloster (Cistercian Monastery)

Zisterzienzerkloster (Cistercian Monastery) Review

This is a rare example of a well preserved medieval monastery from the late 12th century. Following the secularization of 1806, the abbot's abode was rebuilt as a hunting castle for King Frederick of Württemberg. Expansion and restoration continued as long as the palace and monastery continued to be a royal residence. Visits to the palace are with guided tours only.
