    Graefenthal Abbey was founded in 1248 by Count Otto II von Geldern and his wife Margarete von Kleve. It has not lost its charm to this day. The ring walls, the pigeon tower, the cloister with gothic vault ... here you can feel the secrets of yesteryear.

    The former Cistercian monastery was founded in 1248 by Count Otto II of Geldern. You can visit parts of the monastery and enjoy delicious coffee and cake in the Hofcafe.

    The monastery Graefenthal (now called Graefenthal Good and Dutch Klooster Gravendaal) was a Cistercian monastery whose remains are between Kessel and Asperden near the Niers in today's Kleve. The former monastery church served as burying ground for counts, nobles and nuns. Until 1376 there were 10 counts, countesses and dukes of Geldern their final resting place.The name Graefenthal includes the typical silent Lower Rhine stretch-e, which means the "ae" in Graefenthal is pronounced like an "a" rather than an "ä".
