The monastery in Ochsenhausen is considered the flagship monastery of the Upper Swabian Baroque street, unfortunately, you can not visit it spontaneously.The monastery houses a music school and a monastery museum, as well as a baroque library hall, similar to the one in Bad Schussenried Abbey. There is also an observatory, a fruit box and the church on the grounds of the monastery Ochsenhausen, from the Baroque period. To see these sights in Upper Swabia, you have to make an appointment for a guided tour. Spontaneous hikers are closed many things, on the cleaning day of the church, even those. And this although the music school could provide access to parts of the site.
The monastery, which is not unlike a castle, is one of the most important places in Upper Swabia in its time, and the area of the monastery was quite large! In the 18th century the Abbey Ochsenhausen was larger than Biberach, Weingarten or Memmingen and had areas on today's Bavarian side. (18th century map)
