Tips

    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.

    The baroque monastery and pilgrimage church of the archabbey of Beuron is named after its own style - the Beuron style. The church has valuable ceiling paintings and also the frescoes and stucco work are very elaborate. In addition to the church services, regular concerts are held in the church.

    Great starting point for hikes along and above the Danube, eg to the castle Wildenstein.
    Around the monastery there are places to rest in restaurants and cafes.

    In the center of the Gnadenkapelle stands a small altar, over whose tabernacle the Pieta sits enthroned. The dome depicts Mary with the Christ Child surrounded by angels. The walls are adorned with Old Testament models of Mary as well as outstanding figures of saints and invocations from the Lauretan litany.

    The lower church (crypt) of the chapel is burial place of the Beuroner Erzäbte.
