The village has about 3,500 residents as of 2004.Benediktbeuern has a famous monastery, formerly belonging to the Benedictine Order, called Benediktbeuern Abbey, which was founded in about 739. Its name is well known because of the Carmina Burana manuscript found there in 1803 and subsequently set to music by Carl Orff. Since 1930 the Salesians of Don Bosco live in this monastery.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited Benediktbeuern during his third journey to Italy in 1786.Benediktbeuern has kept the structure of a traditional village near the Alps.
