    Banz Monastery was originally designed as a castle, which is why the wooded elevations in the Banz Forest like Kulch or Steglitz were once surrounded with ramparts. These served to protect and defend the castle. Discover the traces of the Celts in the Banz Forest and learn more about the cultural history on the information boards.

    Kloster Banz is today an educational institution and venue. In addition, the former Benedictine monastery houses a museum. Here you can learn more about the history of the monastery. You will also find an extensive fossil collection and a unique oriental collection. You can find information on changing special exhibitions on the website: hss.de/museum-kloster-banz

    Relaxed you can enjoy the last few meters of the walk through the avenue of gnarled old trees. The view of Kloster Banz frames this magical moment.
