  • Langwaden Monastery is a Cistercian monastery in the Grevenbroich district of Langwaden. The monastery is surrounded by a natural forest and is close to the Erft. Everyone is welcome in the guesthouse of the monastery, who is looking for relaxation to body and soul, and who wants to enjoy the monastic atmosphere for a few days or who would like to retreat to contemplation. The small beer garden is ideal for a short break during the hike and bike tour.

  • The monastery was founded in 1145 as a Premonstratensian monastery. This building was built in 1693. After secularization, the building was given to the French officer and diplomat Nicolas-Joseph Maison. Sells Maison, who demolished the monastery chapel in 1830 and had the three monastery wings redesigned into a palace complex. During the Nazi era, the building was used as a labor camp and after the war as an emergency shelter for refugees. Since 1964 until today monks have lived here again, but this time Cistercians.

  • In 2019, an analemmatic sundial was inaugurated on a meadow in the park of the monastery complex in order to bring the old monastic tradition of living to the rhythm of natural daylight into connection with today's lifestyle. The time is displayed through the shadow of the observer and is the true local time of Langwaden, which was valid until the end of the 19th century. The connection to the current legal time CET and CEST is shown on an explanatory board next to the sundial.
    As a special feature, two visor stones are installed on the sundial, which can be used to determine those places on the horizon where the sun rises or sets on the respective date, even without sunlight. Furthermore, the respective times of sunrise and sunset can be read off.

  • An impressive monastery complex, with a small gastronomy, which unfortunately had closed. It's a shame, because a warm soup would have been really good in the bad weather.
