  • The picturesque plant of the former Cistercian Monastery Bebenhausen, which is the best preserved medieval monastery in southwest Germany in addition to Maulbronn is situated in the idyllic landscape of the Schönbuch in the vicinity of Tübingen. The special thing about this place: Bebenhausen Abbey is both monastery and Castle. After the Abbey was dissolved during the Reformation, the Württemberg Kings could rebuild the monastery to the hunting lodge. Today, the former kitchen is functional. King Wilhelm II withdrew here after his abdication with his wife Charlotte and both lived up to their respective death on Schloss Bebenhausen. Today, the whole village is under monumental protection. The visit is like a little time travel into the past and is worthwhile in any case. We were there on Friday morning and had both the monastery and the village almost to ourselves!

  • The abbey was really pretty, worth a visit. It is in Bebenhausen which is in the countryside. Information was given in English and other languages.  
  • The medieval monastery of Bebenhausen is excellently preserved. We have visited the part of the monastery to the hunting lodge built during a 1-hour guided tour. The castle is not large. The apartments and rooms but worth seeing. We can only recommend participation in the leadership. As well as a subsequent walk through the idyllic Schönbuch.
