Since 1863 there is the Benedictine monastery in Beuron. However, the building is older: between the 11th century and 1803 it housed the Augustinian Monastery of Beuron. There are still 40 monks living in the community today. Hospitality is very important to Benedictine monks, so visitors to the monastery are welcome. You can walk across the extensive monastery grounds, visit the various gardens or see the imposing ceiling fresco in the abbey church. Look out for the ceiling after the "Beuroner mold". No matter where in the church you look at the animal, the horse always keeps an eye on you.On the monastery grounds you will find a bookstore. In the monastery shop you can buy some goodies. Regular concerts are also held in the church. Further information can be found here: erzabtei-beuron.de. The monastery also has a guest house with 43 rooms that can be rented.
