INFORMATION FOR YOUR VISIT

According to the most recent Corona Directive of the State of Baden-Württemberg, our ability to open our monuments to guests depends on the seven-day incidence rate of the respective town or city. Some monuments can open, while other monuments must, unfortunately, remain closed. This situation can also change at short notice. Therefore, please check the current hours of operation for each monument. You can find these on our German websites. Thank you for your understanding.

Welcome

The Baroque Schöntal abbey is adorned with two towers – unusually for a Cistercian monastery, as this form of embellishment goes against the order’s minimalist style. This architectural touch symbolizes the abbey’s power and prosperity.
