    The extensive monastery area also includes a pizzeria and a museum, which informs about the monastery. Through the grounds leads a bike and hiking trail.

    Kloster Adelberg was a Premonstratenserstift built in 1178 in Adelberg. For 300 years, a canon and a choir convent existed side by side, in 1476 the nuns had to move to Lauffen am Neckar. The monastery of the Reformed was intensely promoted in its early stages by the Staufer, who initially also provided the governors. Adelberg stood in competition with the neighboring Benedictine monastery Lorch. From 1372 onwards, the convent came under the rule of Württemberg, which brought the abbey to its heyday in the 15th century and made Adelberg one of the richest foundations of the old duchy. During the Peasants' War, the monastery was badly damaged. In the reconstruction period fell the Reformation. After their final introduction Adelberg was from 1565 to 1629/1630 seat of a Protestant convent school. Her most famous pupil was Johannes Kepler. Until 1810 it was the seat of a prelature of the Württemberg regional church. During this time outstanding Protestant theologians officiated there as abbots and prelates, among them Jakob Andreae, Johann Jacob Heinlin, Lucas Osiander the Elder, Johann Wolfgang Jäger and Balthasar Sprenger. Although the complex with its preserved walls is still easy to see, only a few buildings have been preserved from monastic times; The monastery church was demolished after the Reformation. The Ulrichskapelle with its altar from the workshop of Nikolaus Weckmann and the accompanying panel paintings by Bartholomäus Zeitblom stand out artistically.

    A little known gem - the monastery Adelberg. Nicely located, with interesting buildings and some gastronomy (Googling opening times, we were already "in the middle of the day" in front of closed doors).
