Walking in the Closter one can just see the monks walking around in thoughts and prayers... There is a door opening to the Rhine and I could see the boats bringing people and supplies...the garden is one of the most tranquil places I have seen, there are various herbs and medical plants planted there .
The museum is just a few small rooms portraying the life and furniture that the people had back then. So simple but portrays better then anything else how people lived.
Don't miss this small and beautiful museum

The giant press by the entrance, the painted murals on the walls, the interesting floor tiles and the views of the river make this 5 Euros well spent.

The curators are very friendly and made us smile with their enthusiasm. Take a slow wander around and transport yourself back to the 13th to 15th century.

Once you are in Stein am Rhein it is worth to visit this small museum. The most amazing things are the frescoes painted around 1500. The place makes you feel like in ancient times and the views to the Rhein are beatiful.

The St. George's Abbey is a true hidden gem in Stein am Rhein. You will make a big mistake if you don't spend an hour for it while visiting the picturesque town of Stein am Rhein. We were lucky it was rainy on the day we made the boat trip to Stein, so we decided to look at the old monastery while waiting for the next boat back. Now, that's called serendipity! We were the only visitors and enjoyed the views from the windows to the river, the walk through the living quarters of the monks, perfectly preserved as they were 5-6 centuries ago. The only other visitors were a couple of researchers historians, for whom the great Festsaal was open and we were also invited inside to have a close look at the amazing frescoes painted in 1515. They call them the most beautiful and best preserved Renaissance paintings north of the Alps. Absolutely marvelous! Very highly recommended.
