Bike Touring Highlight
The monastery was founded in 1420 by Dominican monks. The main part of the monastery complex is formed by the pilgrimage and monastery church from the 15th century. The buildings were repeatedly destroyed by fire, but each time they were rebuilt. In 1717 the monastery and church were built in their current form.Every year, several thousand pilgrims come to Marienheide, most of them for the octave, starting on the first weekend in July. But also on other (celebratory) days you can see many pilgrims going through the village to the pilgrimage church.
