“Beautiful setting, some buildings closed for renovation.”

Zisterzienserkloster Raitenhaslach
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Difficult to get to on public transport (we used a cab) this is a beautiful setting, with reportedly good beer garden/guest house. The interior of the church is spectacular, but we were unable to see other interiors also in Baroque style as renovations ongoing (summer 2012).

Make sure to have plenty of time because this one is big! On the compound one can find the monastery, the former Abbeychurch St. George and Pankratius Church, conventbuilding, the Prälatengarden with old vaulted corridor with frescoes, the old watermill, the troutponds (garded by 2 geese), a watertower from the 16th century, former stables, the old brewery. Just outside the compound one can find the former icecellar (present a gymnastichall). If you are in group, book a guidetour. In that way one can visit the former popechamber and the partyhall (which otherwise will stay hidden as no private entrance. Raitenhaslach Abbey was a Cistercian monastery founded 1143. The monastery was disolved wit general secularisation in 1803. As the buildings were too big for private use, it was tried to sell. After a long search and several discounts only the lucrative parts of the monastery were sold, such as the brewery The majority of the buildings were demolished: the relatively new library building from 1785, the refectory and the so-called mathematical Tower. The other buildings and most of the immense inventory were sold to highest and was sold with a few exceptions to the kiloprice (the valuable books as recovered paper) to dealers in furniture, the works of art to wealthy citizens and the nobility, agricultural device to farmers from the surrounding area. The church became a parish church in 1806. The remaining buildings served since presbytery, school, brewery, restaurant and private apartments. Free parkinglot.
