    The Norbertgymnasium NGK is housed in the monastery. A Catholic school in the morning is still praying. Both Christian denominations are taught here.
    Outside the monastery walls there is the local Klosterhof where there is the notorious Knechtstedener Schwarzbier (only here)
    The monastery also hosts concerts that are in high demand.
