The Monastery

"Our door stands open, even more so our heart"

Kloster Eberbach has always been a place of retreat and reflection. The abbey represents medieval architecture like no other place in Hessen and reflects 900 years of society and culture with its unique history.

We have made it our mission to carry on this unique heritage and preserve it for future generations. "Our door stands open, even more so our heart" – this Cistercian motto determines our daily activities.
