    The Egg Klause was first settled in 1256 by Heinrich Finck from the feudal nobility of the Counts of Heiligenberg. Soon afterwards he gave the hermitage to Salem Monastery, which it owned until 1844. Prince Karl Egon II. Zu Fürstenberg won them back and left these Cistercian monks to live in.
    The hermitage was orphaned from 1966 to 1971. Trapistines have lived here since August 1971. The hermitage cannot be visited, but the hiking trails there and the hermitage are very attractive from the outside. The view from the meadow in front of the Klause (Hugobank) also opens up the entire Salem Valley and, when there is a foehn, you can see the Swiss Alpine panorama from here.
