    A complex that is absolutely worth seeing, the former Benedictine Abbey of Banz Monastery is located on the Banzberg and can be seen from afar. From above there is a wonderful view of the Main Valley. There is a shady beer garden right at the entrance and a beer garden with a view at the climbing garden. Today the monastery is an educational institution of the Hanns Seidel Foundation.

    The monastery is absolutely worth seeing, as it threatens, the church was unfortunately closed and the great view of the distance covered by the haze, beer garden and climbing forest are also available.

    Baroque complex that can be seen from afar with a beautiful view over the garden of God on the Obermain. Worth seeing is the monastery church and the Petrefact / Oriental collection. Partly paragliders can be observed. For people who like to get into the air, the climbing garden is recommended.

    Spacious and quite impressive monastery complex. The spacious parking lot in front of the facility can be used as a starting point for various round trips.

    The former Benedictine Abbey of Banz Monastery is visible from afar like a landmark on the Banzberg high above the Main Valley in Upper Franconia. The monastery is now used by the Hanns Seidel Foundation as an educational facility and as a backdrop for the “Lieder auf Banz”. You can visit the monastery and the museum on a guided tour. The monastery church is also well worth seeing. The concerts of the Banz Organ Summer in the collegiate church are popular. The monastery belongs to the ensemble of the Gottesgarten in the Upper Mainland.
