    Ottobeuren Monastery is a Benedictine abbey in Ottobeuren in Upper Swabia. The building complex, also known as the "Swabian Escorial", is located in the Diocese of Augsburg. The abbey belongs to the Bavarian Benedictine Congregation.

    In the basilica you will find very elaborate ceiling paintings. Sometimes there are organ concerts there. The acoustics in the basilica are gigantic.

    Built from 1737 to 1766, the basilica is one of the most beautiful German Baroque churches, a sublime structure of European renown. From February to November, there will be a guided tour every Saturday at 2pm. The world-famous Riepp organs in the basilica are consistent in their craftsmanship, design, quality and sound as a top performance of organ building of all time. For nearly 50 years, organ concerts have been held for an audition, which are usually performed free of charge from 4 pm on Saturdays from February to November. Donations to maintain the organs are very welcome.

    The basilica is really worth seeing - from the inside, but also from the outside. Already at the entrance to the car in the town stands out on how they sympathetically dominated this - it is huge and perched on the market square, absolutely worth seeing!

    The Benedictine abbey is settled since the year 764 in Ottobeuren. Today 19 monks live here. A visit to the basilica is a must on the tour.

    Ottobeuren is the birthplace of Johann Sebastian Kneipp. A really nice place with a huge abbey.
    Highly recommended with all the pomp of the church / abbey and the history of Pastor Kneipp (200 years)
    The landscape is also worth a bike tour.
