    The monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Occasionally there are events and events in the cloister courtyard. You can find detailed information at the city of Maulbronn at

    Delicious food in the Klosterpost (, where there are, among other things, great Maultaschen and in the Kloster-Katz ( with Italian dishes, coffee, cakes and ice cream.

    In the Kloster-Katz there is also delicious ice cream on hand during the warm season (ice cream parlor).

    Beautiful view of the plant from the north side in the vineyards. You get there
    by walking past the visitor center between the buildings at the café and climbing the wooden staircase to the bastion. If you keep left, you come to the viewpoint on the barriers.

    The Maulbronn Monastery is a former Cistercian abbey in the center of Maulbronn. Town and monastery are located on the southwestern edge of the Stromberg, which rises in the south of the Odenwald and north of the Black Forest Kraichgau. The next big city is the Baden-Württemberg Pforzheim. Wikipedia

    It is a very beautiful and very well preserved Cistercian abbey, indeed. Here some scenes of the film "The Name of the Rose" were shot. For this reason too, entering this monastic complex is like diving into the Middle Ages.

    Best to visit Monastery Mo-Do. Then it is pleasantly calm and not overflowing.

    Very beautiful, large and absolutely well-preserved or historically correctly restored monastery complex. The "Maulbronn Cistercian Monastery" is one of only six world heritage sites in Baden Württemberg (46 in all of Germany) that are registered on the UNESCO world heritage list. If you are in the vicinity of Maulbronn, you should definitely see this facility, absolutely recommended!

    Admission to the large inner courtyard is free, for a visit to the monastery church and the cloister you have to pay € 8 as an individual (but it is definitely worth it). Those who wish can also book a guided tour or borrow an audio guide. The opening times are Mon - Sun and public holidays 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. (last admission 4.45 p.m.)

    You can find more information at Current admission prices and opening times can be found there under "Visit information".

    Absolutely before 12:00 get hold of a place in the monastery cat, then it will be hard. From the outside you can overlook the beautiful courtyard cvor the monastery well.
