This must have been a great place in the old days. Unfortunately you can see that it’s not that well kept any longer since the monastery closed down. It’s still nice to visit if you are anyway in the neighborhood

Staying in Minderlittgen and this place was recommended to us. Great food, genuine German cuisine. Potato soup I ordered was more a vegetable soup dominated by potato, delicious! Bread was more artisanal, crusty and yummy. Great dining experience!

We visited the Abbey and then surrounding grounds and found it very interesting, the church has a historic organ in it and a good example of the time, there is a cafe there where you can eat and drink as well.

Beutiful place. I been here a few times. The surrounding area makes this place even more remarkable. I come here everytime I'm in town.

I have been here multiple times and this was somewhere when people are visiting us we would stop to show. I think the best time is near the Christmas holidays, but any time is great. It is simple but talk to some of the locals...More
