    The foundation stone was laid on July 12, 1030, in the morning at 07:00 clock, by the Salian Emperor Conrad II and on the same day also the foundation stone in the dome to Speyer. The abbey was burned down and on 30 Aug. 1504 incompletely renewed in a feud between the Palatinate and Leiningen in 1554, but from 1574 on it was left to decay. In 1853 the ruin was transferred to Bad Dürkheim. The monastery ruins have enclosing walls of early Romanesque. The monastery was built as a three-aisled pillared basilica and with a double tower facade.

    In July, it was burned in the local of the monastery. I think it is still closed.

    Large, worth seeing monastery ruin on an exposed mountain spur,
    with remains of the old tracery
