Mountain Biking Highlight
The remote settlement Weiherhof near Döpshofen is located a little southwest of the Oberschönenfeld monastery. The solid baroque building served as an inn and was a popular excursion destination in the Augsburg-Western Forests nature park. Next door is the Weiherhof Golf Club with a 9-hole golf course.
According to tradition, the first seat of the Oberschönenfeld convent was located here in the High Middle Ages. The monastery finally left Weiherhof in 1211 and moved to its current location. The present or former inn was built in 1728.
The Weiherhof now belongs to the Oberschönenfeld Monastery and is to be expanded as a future depot for Swabia's artists' bequests.
Other conceivable projects could be temporary accommodation in the former inn for students and artists for work and research in the sense of “artist in residence”, studios and exhibitions.
