    "The abbey Münsterschwarzach is located at the mouth of the Schwarzach in the Main, about 23 kilometers east of Würzburg, in Schwarzach am Main and is one of the most important monasteries of the Benedictines in Germany.
    The convent consists of 115 Benedictines, of which about 80 in Münsterschwarzach and 35 in dependent houses of the monastery or missionary work worldwide. "Wikipedia

    Especially because of the active monastery life, the large complex and the architecture really worth seeing.

    The Münsterschwarzach Monastery can look back on a tradition dating back to the 8th century. The cathedral at the confluence of Schwarzach and Main was built around the year 788. In the 18th century, the monastery was renovated baroque, the new abbey church Balthasar Neumann 1727 - 1743. The church was damaged by lightning in 1810 and demolished in the years 1821-1827. It was not until 1938 that the monastery was again given a large abbey church whose architecture recalls the Romanesque period.

    Very interesting exhibition on life in the monastery, which can be visited free of charge. In addition to the monastery, you should definitely take a look in the Fair Traid store. There are many beautiful and useless things from all over the world.
