Tips

  • Thorsten

    From the Franciscan monastery you have a wonderful view over the Main valley. In the monastery tavern beer is served from the well-known Kreuzberg monastery. The snacks are also very tasty. In the monastery shop you can buy devotional items and take-away items from the monastery tavern. The monastery has a very long history: the first small church may have stood on the site as early as the 14th century. In the meantime, the complex has developed into a popular excursion destination and is not only very popular with visitors at church festivals.

    The view from up there is so beautiful, that you forgot the ascent with 612 steps!

    Picturesque monastery, which "thrones" over the wine village of Großheubach
    - after a tour of the church and monastery garden, it's worth making a detour to the tavern for a monastery beer :-)

    After the 612 steps you can choose between oxygen tent or a spicy dark Klosterbräu from Fass.🤔🍻😁

    Opportunity for a hearty snack in the Klosterschänke - lentil soup, sausage, cabbage, bread and a spicy beer: simple and good.

    The monastery is a good starting point for hiking. The view from there is great and the beer is also very good 😊👍

    On foot over the 612 steps or by bike up the steep road. No matter if you are upstairs and can enjoy the view and then wash down a remarkable cheese bread with a dark monastery beer in the monastery bar, you know that it was not the last time you were here!

    After 612 steps you are rewarded with a beautiful view.. Monastery with a small shop, restaurant and beer garden. (Monday rest day)
    Coffee and cake were delicious, I haven't had a snack there yet

    From the monastery you have a wonderful view, so that the ascent is always worthwhile. In addition, you are very well supplied with food and drinks in the monastery restaurant. The Kreuzberger beer is not to be despised either

    After the aspired ascent of 612 steps, one should enjoy the view, visit the monastery garden, the restaurant and also the church

    So the view is unfortunately not really nice at first glance, you look at the industrial areas on the Main.
    At second glance, however, you can see over it and let your gaze wander over the Odenwald.


    The beer in the monastery brewery tastes great, even if it is not brewed here but in the Kreuzberg monastery.

    You just have to be here. Very nice atmosphere. In addition to the tavern, I also expressly recommend the monastery church.

    As already mentioned above - Monday is the day of rest - so no beer but enjoyed the wonderful view and a tour of the monastery complex without a large audience
