I was expecting more from a unesco monument. I don’t believe is put properly in the right « light ».

The 8th century convent church is stunning, being home to the world’s most comprehensive and best-kept series of pictures from the early Middle Ages and some impressive frescos.

Just happened to pass this place in the middle of nowhere which turns out to have been founded by Charlemagne and is fascinating although we were once again struck by the language problem. However,the people were very friendly and helpful.

A really lovely old building, founded by Charlemagne and still just about an active convent. The very old frescoes are beautiful, although I understand the very oldest have been removed to a museum elsewhere in Switzerland. The old convent rooms are fascinating and give a real picture of convent life and hardships in past generations. If visiting from Merano/Mals/the Vinschgau/Val Venosta, or anywhere in South Tyrol, your Mobilcard completely covers the Swiss postbus journey from Mals or Glurns/Glorenza.

This place seems to be founded back in 775 and we were disappointed by the poor and scarce presentation in the museum. The way from Zug to Mustair is extremely scenic though but the monastery itself is not worth it.
