    Besides the stamp of the HWN 059, there are snacks around the fish and other goodies. We recommend.

  • Wanderkönigin mit höherem Ziel

    Here there is a stamp for the Harzer hiking needle and the Harzer Klosterweg (but only if the museum is open in the monastery).
    The old monasteries and the beautiful fish ponds are beautiful in any weather. There are good restaurants and a lot to do.

    If you feed the fish food out of the machine, the water seems to boil, so eager are the fish in the pond. A spectacle 😀

    The stamp location is very hidden and difficult to discover. It is located at the fish ponds.

    Michaelstein Monastery is located between Blankenburg and Heimburg in the water-rich monastery grounds.
    At the beginning of the 12th century, the general chapter of the still young Cistercian order decided: no monasteries may be built in cities, fortified places and villages.
    This law was also obeyed here in the Harz when the monastery dedicated to Archangel Michael was built.
    As when it was founded (1146), Michaelstein is still today away from the urban life of Blankenburg in an idyllic location on the edge of the Harz.
    It experienced a prolonged economic heyday in the Middle Ages, its abbots were repeatedly called upon to perform spiritual missions by the popes.
    Even back then, fish was farmed in the ponds specially created for this purpose.
    In 1543 the last Catholic abbot resigned from office.
    The Counts of Blankenburg set up a monastery school, which continued to exist after the Dukes of Braunschweig took over. At the beginning of the 18th century, Duke Ludwig-Rudolf had extensive construction work carried out and a seminary for preachers established.
    After French rule, Michaelstein only had economic functions, which the monastery property retained under various legal entities even after the so-called land reform.
    Today the Saxony-Anhalt Music Academy for Education and Performance Practice is based here.
    The monastery offers a rich program of events and is a popular destination on the Romanesque Road.

    Here at the Klostergrund stamping point you have a great view of the fish ponds, which are right on the edge of the monastery. If you are hungry, you can visit the Klosterfischer fish restaurant and enjoy freshly caught fish (of course from the fish ponds). The refuge is right next to the first and second pond.
