Bike Touring Highlight
Chorin Monastery had a large sphere of influence at that time. The Ascanian princes usually built a village about every five kilometers, and a city was founded every 20 to 25 kilometers. The monasteries, in turn, were built far from the cities and mostly on former Slavic fortifications.
In summer, the Chorin Music Summer and other concerts have been taking place in the buildings since 1964.

Former Cistercian monastery of the early brick Gothic, costs a few euros admission, whether it was really worth it we could not learn songs, as a classical concert was held. Anyway, the area is very beautiful, there are numerous lakes, cycling and hiking trails.

Beautiful monastery and surroundings - especially the lake but make sure you don't go their without checking the schedule... Unfortunately we ran into their concert Sunday and weren't able to go inside anymore.

An exhibition on the history of the Chorin Monastery is located in the basement vaults of the west wing. By means of various display boards and other exhibits, one can look back very clearly in the approximately 750-year history of the monastery. Particularly exciting is the relief map with the other buildings that belonged to the surroundings of the monastery. A cross illuminated in the background and a spade illustrate the life's work of the Cistercian monks: "pray and work".
