    The monastery Fürstenzell is a former Cistercian abbey in Fürstenzell in Bavaria in the Diocese of Passau. It was a daughter monastery of the monastery Aldersbach from the Filiation of the primary abbey Morimond - monastery Ebrach.monastery
    The monastery buildings are also significant. They were built in 1687 around a courtyard, the west and south wing reorganized in 1770 under Abbot Otto Prasser. The ballroom or prince's hall (now chapel) was painted in 1733 by Bartolomeo Altomonte with ceiling paintings, the former dining room by Johann Gfall. The staircase is spanned by a painting by Zeillers created around 1765. The library room was built after 1770. Joseph Deutschmann from Passau created the carvings, in particular the gallery railing resting on atlases with numerous putti and ornaments. Over the side staircases putti in allegorical allusion with sausages instead of weapons. The ceiling fresco by Zeiller and Matthäus Günther was removed in the 19th century.
