The Benedictine monastery in Beuron has existed since 1863. However, the building is older: Between the 11th century and 1803, the Augustinian canon of Beuron was located in it. Today, 40 monks still live in the community. Hospitality is very important to the Benedictine monks, so visitors are welcome in the monastery. You can stroll across the extensive monastery grounds, visit the various gardens or take a look at the imposing ceiling fresco in the abbey church. Look for the “Beuron mold” on the ceiling. No matter where in the church you look at the animal, the horse always has you in view.
You will find a bookshop on the monastery grounds. You can buy some goodies in the monastery shop. Concerts are also held regularly in the church. You can find more information here: erzabtei-beuron.de. The monastery also has a guest house with 43 rooms that can be rented.
