A room for reflection and action
The abbot's quarters are accessed via the Order Hall and the hunting room. From the mid 18th century until secularization in 1802, this room not only served as the abbot's living quarters, but also as his seat of power. It is where he resolved church questions, discussed questions of law and made important decisions regarding the future of Schöntal Monastery. A door, hidden inside a cabinet, allowed the abbot to eavesdrop on conversations.
