Amazing interior!

Wow. I was amazed by the mere view of the outside walls but, when I stepped in I was speechless. Great place with so many things to see. The building is old but in a great shape... read more

Wow. I was amazed by the mere view of the outside walls but, when I stepped in I was speechless. Great place with so many things to see. The building is old but in a great shape. I like the purpose of the building (it is a museum, church and a library). It looks amazing and it is worth seeing... More

A cloister which is a "must-see" for lovers of history and architecture, as well as for those willing to hear religious information connected with the local area. But again, NO English written information is provided, so you should ask for the self-guided tour in English, for the library tour, which is a gem. You will get no information at the... More

One of the most interesting places to visit within a short distance of Ulm. A monastery with astounding baroque features Many areas to walkabout and soak in the atmosphere of a monastery of the middle ages. Design features that are truly amazing. An afternoon or morning of moving feelings

When you visit or pass through Ulm take the time out to visit Wilbilgen Abbey. The museum that leads you to the library is nothing outstanding but has some very interest pieces and information if you want to take the time to look through the rooms but the gem of Kloster Wiblingen is without question is the library. It's worth... More

I read that the Wiblingen Abbey Library was one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. It did not disappoint. We did have to pay 4,50 euro each to see the museum and library (plus more if you want to take pictures, you do). We did not care for the museum but spent over an hour looking at all... More

We enjoyed the library but nothing was in English and with us having to pay 9.50€ just to see the library was a little steep. The grounds don't have much to see and the church was occupied for a wedding, we managed to see it through a side door but overall it was a beautiful library and it was a... More

If in Ulm, take a bus out to Wiblingen to visit this monastery. Don't miss the library. Overly ornate-simply beautiful.
