Tips

  • Clemens

    The Maulbronn Monastery World Heritage Site is one of the best-preserved medieval monastery complexes north of the Alps. The Cistercian character of the architecture and also the surrounding cultural landscape is visible almost unadulterated. When visiting, you should not only see the monastery itself, but also the surrounding area by taking a short hike or cycling tour.

    During the Christmas season you should definitely visit the Christmas market in the Klosterhof!

    Beautiful view of the complex from the north side in the vineyards. You can get there by walking past the café between the buildings from the visitor center and climbing the wooden stairs to the battlements. If you keep to the left, you will come to the "Auf den Barrieren" vantage point.

    The monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are always happenings and events in the monastery courtyard. You can find detailed information from the city of Maulbronn at maulbronn.de/de/alle/startseite.

    Delicious food in the Klosterpost (klosterpost.de/), where there are great Maultaschen among other things, and in the Klosterkatz (kloster-katz.de/) Italian dishes, coffee, cake and ice cream. In the Klosterkatz there is also delicious ice cream on the hand (ice cream parlour) during the warm season.

    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.

    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 kloster-maulbronn.de/start. Current admission prices and opening times can be found there under "Visit information".

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

    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.
