  • There is no point in going here. The church and former monastery have been undergoing "renovation/restoration" for at least 7 years and there is not end in sight.  more »
  • The monastery is not open to the public for massive restoration of the site: in any case you can get the same on the Hill to admire the town from a privileged position. Suggest that you go up the pedestrian street which leads to the gardens, Benediktinerwg, small Aufseßtraße cross, just below the wall of Rosengarten.

  • The monastery houses also authorities of the city next to the Church and the museum rooms. All this is not accessible due to renovation works currently. But still, you should climb the Michaelsberg, best: coming from the old town go along on the river Regnitz, this look at little Venice on the other side. To the City Center (itself worth a visit) shore climb, now follow the yellow signs. There is a small door, one could easily overlook without an another yellow sign - this open and now climb stairs and paths in the retaining wall on the road. You can also take the city bus there. For cars, there are hardly any parking, so be careful! First, one walks through an abandoned vineyard with Baroque chalets. From here, you have a very good view of the surrounding area up to the Giechburg (also a worthwhile destination). Benches are available even to a break. Then continue to the monastery itself, it just unfortunately currently not can be seen. But the view to the hill over a vineyard, other, still in operation is unobstructed, also it's worth to climb the Michaelsberg. Then then best onward through the old town to the Cathedral.
