    The Münsterschwarzach monastery can look back on a tradition going back to the 8th century. The minster at the confluence of the Schwarzach and Main rivers was built around 788. In the 18th century, the monastery complex was renovated in Baroque style, and the new abbey church was created by Balthasar Neumann (1727-1743). The church was damaged by lightning in 1810 and demolished between 1821 and 1827. It was not until 1938 that the monastery received a large abbey church, the architecture of which reminds of the Romanesque period.

    "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.

    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.

    The monastery fountain is located in a room at the entrance to the monastery grounds. Here visitors can tap water from the deep monastery well for free and enjoy it in sustainable, plastic-free cups! A great thing not only on warm days!
