Rosenthal Monastery, today Rosenthalerhof or Kerzenheim, district Rosenthal, was a Cistercian abbey dedicated to Our Lady. The monastery was founded in 1241 by Count Eberhard IV of Eberstein (former count Eberhard II), lord of the castle to Stauf, and his wife Adelheid of Sayn. After the Battle of Göllheim Adolf von Nassau was first buried in this former Cistercian monastery Rosenthal and later transferred to Speyer. Today, Adolf von Nassau and his former opponent Albrecht von Habsburg lie side by side.

This cemetery exists since the middle of the 19th century. Thanks to a citizens' initiative from the 1990s, which made the cemetery safe and walkable in painstaking detail work and still takes care of it today, you can find peace and quiet here in the shade.
