    First to the "Great Grotto", then over the Tugendpfad (upper or lower does not matter) to Blautopf and then back through the monastery complex to Blaubeuren - beautiful and varied hike.

    The monastery Blaubeuren in Blaubeuren (Württemberg) was founded around 1085 Benedictine monastery in the immediate vicinity of Blautopfs, which fell after the Reformation to the Duke of Württemberg and became a Protestant seminary. Today, the late medieval monastery buildings are used as a classical grammar school; they are next to the monastery Maulbronn site of the Protestant seminaries Maulbronn and Blaubeuren.

    Numerous very well-preserved, late-medieval monastery buildings around the spacious, tree-lined monastery courtyard invite you to discover and linger.

    In addition to the monastery church, it is worth taking a look at the bathhouse of the monks, the only bathhouse for monks in Germany. In the old half-timbered building, the bathhouse can be visited as part of the local museum Blaubeuren.

    If you walk through the pretty old town of Blaubeuren, you come to a wooden gate that looks quite private. However, access is permitted and you are standing in the middle of the monastery grounds. The first thing that inspires you are the colorfully tiled tower roofs. Only at second glance do you discover how incredibly old all these buildings are. You can see from the wood what it must have already experienced. Viewed from the side, you can see how wavy the walls of the building are and if you read the history of the Blaubeuren monastery, you can guess how this profound charisma and lasting effect come about. Here are a few excerpts: “The Blaubeuren monastery in Blaubeuren was a Benedictine monastery founded around 1085 in the immediate vicinity of the Blautopf. It was largely rebuilt in 1466–1501. ... The monastery was settled with monks from Hirsau Monastery, which also provided the first abbot (Abbot Azelin) for Blaubeuren. In the first decades of its existence the monastery was gifted with numerous possessions and probably experienced a certain heyday ... In the 14th and early 15th centuries there was a temporary decline and several crimes were reported. In 1347 the prior and in 1407 the abbot are said to have been murdered by monks. At the same time, the plague raged in Central Europe, and the monastery was probably temporarily depopulated and lost its property. However, through several foundations, the monastery was able to be restored and regained possession of its goods ... “Source Wikipedia de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kloster_Blaubeuren

    Old town & monastery. Two worlds ... in the Middle Ages, the Benedictine monastery and city were strictly separated from each other by high walls

    Faith is a powerful engine - he created the monastery in Blaubeuren, which is closely linked to the development of Blaubeuren.
