Tips

  • Mrs. Fluffs

    A very beautiful monastery ruin, which we liked to look at. The church, which is directly adjacent to the ruins, is definitely worth a visit. We will definitely be back.

    The monastery Hirsau was a Benedictine monastery in Hirsau in the northern Black Forest. Mostly one means thereby the plant pc. Peter and Paul. In a broader sense, however, the term also includes its predecessor.

    Hirsau (formerly also Hirschau) was at times one of the most important monasteries in Germany. It served the Cluniac reform movement very early as a German base. From here a number of monastery foundations went off, but also the renewal of existing communities after the so-called Hirsauer reform. At the time of its construction in the late 11th century St. Peter and Paul was the largest monastery in the German-speaking area. During the Palatinate War of Succession burnt the plant in 1692 and then fell.

    Hirsau Abbey lies in the Nagold Valley between densely forested Black Forest heights. In the Middle Ages, the Benedictine abbey was of paramount importance, ecclesiastically and politically. The mighty ruins of two large monasteries, St. Aurelius and St. Peter and Paul, bear witness to this.

    The 'Calwer Monastery Summer' takes place in the monastery complex every summer. I myself was at an Anastacia concert two years ago. It was a great experience in this atmosphere.

    - more frequented on weekends or when the weather is nice

    Hirsau Monastery is freely accessible and definitely worth a visit. You are rarely alone here when the weather is nice. Benches invite you to linger.
