    Anyone who has completed the 612 steps can choose between a rustic monastery brew or an oxygen tent

    The 612 steps up can be really exhausting, depending on the speed.

    Engelberg Monastery is located high above Großheubach.
    We reached the Engelberg via a staircase with a total of 612 steps, the so-called "Engelstaffeln". According to legend, angels carried the building material up there. This path leads past six chapels from the 17th century.
    The longest external monastery staircase in Bavaria.

    612 stone steps lead from Großheubach to Engelberg!
    These can also be avoided via a parallel serpentine path.

    The steps to Engelberg Monastery are steep and numerous, but are especially fun when you know that you have reached the monastery 😉. The view from the monastery, the monastery garden and the gastronomy in the monastery make up for the effort of the ascent.

    The Engel 😇🏔berg is high above Großheubach, from where it is u. a. over 612 sandstone steps, the so-called "Engelsstaffeln" (in 1637 this "heavenly staircase" with the so-called "Engels😇staffeln" was created. Six chapels invite you to reflect). The climb ⬆️ is worth it. However, you can also get to the monastery from Milten🗻berg Nord, you save yourself the climb and can walk down the steps on the way back⬇️.

    The ascent is worthwhile, once you have arrived at the top you will find a great church and a restaurant (opens only on February 23rd, 2022).
