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.

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".
