    When in 1123 the monastery was founded as the first Cistercian monastery in German territory (Holy Roman Empire of German Nations) on the Kamper Heights, no one could have guessed that the complex would be affectionately named after the castle built in Potsdam only centuries later. Particularly characteristic is the terrace and baroque garden, which was created in the 18th century after the Thirty Years' War and is arranged in steps similar to Park Sanssouci. After the secularization and abandonment of the monastery in 1802, the complex was used from 1954 to 2002 by a Carmelite Order.

    Kamp Kamp in Kamp-Lintfort was founded in 1123 as the first Cistercian monastery in German-speaking countries and has experienced and participated in so many things throughout history. It was long abandoned to decay and has been restored and refurbished in recent decades.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kloster_Kamp

    The garden, part of the State Garden Exhibition in 2020, the church, the monastery and all its stories are worth a visit. But the many events in and around the monastery are also high lights. Musical treats in the Rococo hall, Kamper night, medieval market, organ concerts, art exhibitions, immersion exhibitions and training courses, open air theater performances are just the things that come to mind spontaneously. Of course, the surrounding area around the monastery is a nice area for the runner and cyclist.
