This former benedictine monastery in the heart of the Black Forest was founded in the 11th century and not only has the famous romanesque monastery church been preserved, but also the cloisters and kitchen outbuildings. The benedictine reformed monastery was dissolved during the Reformation but later, for a brief period in the 16th. century, became home to a protestant church school. The history of the monastery is retold in the museum located in the restored apartments of the prior where a number of spectacular items of historical interest such as shoes, clothing, letters and drawings all of which belonged to the school’s pupils in the 16th. century are on display.
