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.

We usually stop at Himmerod on our way towards the Mosel and in previous trips we noticed that there was a fishery on the grounds. This isn't one of those "Fish & Fry" places where the fish will bite anything that hits the water. We...More
