The checkered past of Maria Laach Abbey--its connection to the Third Reich--is the big draw for visitors. But the abbey was founded millenniums before, in 1093. Since then, the structure has undergone multiple restorations and improvements, one of which gave it its double towers and distinctive chapel. Stop inside the cathedral to see the tomb of Henry of Laach and a collection of mosaics, some dating back to the church's early beginnings.

The Abbey is the only Basilica North of the Alps, which preserved the so-called paradise-courtyard (Atrium) before entering.
I'm generally not that interested in religious places, but this place definitely was worth visiting. A thousand year old monastery makes one think how something can survice that long.
It is a very nice and relaxing place, feel free to visit it :)
Uli M.I personally think it's the most beautiful Monastery complex at all. The atmosphere locally is exactly my taste especially to the reform. The sound from the chant of the monks are wonderful.
Andreas PouwelsVery nice monastery. It's worth a visit. Nearby is a parking (other side of the street). Parking fee of € 2 is fully in order. Monastery is to reach in a few minutes (max. 5 min) from the parking lot.
Wanders MannNice clean site. There is much to discover. Of course, the highlight is the Abbey Church.
