Maulbronn Monastery
Maulbronn Monastery was given UNESCO World Heritage status due to how well it, and the surrounding landscape, has been preserved.
USEFUL INFO

Maulbronn Monastery was given UNESCO World Heritage status due to how well it, and the surrounding landscape, has been preserved. It was originally built by Cistercian monks in the 12th century and large parts of the complex remain exactly as they were. With different styles being used in different areas, from Romanesque to Gothic, a unique atmosphere and architectural mix are created. Having ceased to function as a monastery more than 500 years ago, it is now used as a school. The highlight is undoubtedly the monastery church, complete with Gothic arches, treasures and a fountain chapel.

Along with everything that the buildings can teach us, there is a lot to be learnt from the land that surrounds the monastery complex. Mostly untouched, it gives us a great insight into the farming techniques used by the monks.
