  • Stephanie

    Unique monastery in North Rhine-Westphalia. The former Benedictine Abbey of Corvey is considered one of the most important monastic foundations in medieval Germany.

    Castle and monastery stand for 1200 years of German cultural and architectural history and are also part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Worth seeing are the Carolingian Westwerk, the baroque palace complex, the cloister and the Äbtegalerie as well as the magnificent Imperial Hall and the multi-faceted pomp and living rooms from the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Distance to the bike path: 500 m
    Guided tours and special exhibitions in the castle and monastery of Corvey are offered, as well as regular concerts.

    World Heritage Site Corvey, from the outside it does not matter much, except that it's big construction.
    Who wants to visit it. Costs a proud 9.50 Euro per person.
    But as I said, the way is the goal.

    You will pass Schloss Corvey by following the Weser cycle path from Höxter to Holzminden.
    Very impressive building history steeped in history.

    Those who only want to visit the Abbey Church, pay only € 2.00 and have access to the world-famous Carolingian Westwerk, the UNESCO World Heritage. This price is really fair!

    There is a lot to see about the Weser Renaissance and a very nice place to stop off.

    The Höxteraner even cultivate their own vineyard at their chapel St. Josef am Weinberg near B64-Bundesstraße "Teufelsschlucht".

    In addition to the beautifully located Corvey Castle, is located in the immediate vicinity nor the Weser bridge for train traffic. Due to their lack of (new) painting, the bridge has a special flair.

    Huge, very nice facility, partly still in Romanesque style. You can also walk without guidance through the historic rooms.

    Impressive monastery complex which is partly only with entrance to visit
      Another part is today a sports hotel in which, for example, cyclists can spend the night and canoeing can be made.
