  • Since there were only six people a leadership and any other interested parties appeared at the time of my visit, I had denied the leadership and I can't judge accordingly also. Visiting the leaderless, you can visit the Church of the monastery and the Museum, where you can learn much about the history of the monastery of course. While I believe that one in case a real interest previously read the very informative site (or flown at least) should! In many rooms sketches and panels explain how the relevant part of the building was used and how it was used. Extremely interesting, I find the Interior redesigns at the donjon. Here can be seen in detail in some places, like from a fortified tower with stone walls is a residential tower with wood-beamed rooms. Frescoes and church art lovers get some real historical treasures to see, which indicate, why it is to a UNESCO world cultural heritage. Really is it but only in a leadership or halt in the self-study. The notion that some frescoes are 1200 years old, can be a sheer thrill at the sight. Another argument for a visit is the drive by the way. True to the motto "The journey is the reward" is recommended by the beautiful National Park and Val Müstair towards the monastery alone the journey by bus or car from Zernez and is rounded off by a visit to monastery. In the shop, you can buy some crafts and delicious Selbstgebranntes - such as in monasteries common -. I will come back again - in hope of a lead. Without leadership, it sure is not for everyone.

  • It is a world heritage in Switzerland mountain müstair monastery. It is a valuable monastery built in the name of the Frankish king Charlemagne, 9th century Carolingian buildings remain. In particular the 9th century Carolingian from old Romanesque 12th-century frescoes is valuable when it is. Published by car was equipped with large parking lot, toilets beside the monastery, and is useful. Would spend a quiet moment here in July, overflowed with alpine plants around the tranquil mountain monasteries.
