In 1727, Mathias Hartz, abbot of Echternach, had the old Benedictine monastery demolished to build a new abbey in Classical style.
the abbey of Saint-Benoît-en-Woëvre is situated in the heart of the Meuse department, in close proximity to Lake Lachaussée.
the monastery was built in 1682/1683 by master Thomas Gampfer on a small hill in the Bliestal valley called the Han.
the historic monastery is located on a hill just outside of Welschbillig, a municipality in the Eifel region of western Germany.
Religious, economic and cultural centre of the Eifel region since the Middle Ages, the Cistercian monastery of Himmerod is nestled in a remote valley, far away from the next town.
a wonderfully unique concert and event location housed in a former monastery, Les Trinitaires consists of altogether three venues: a chapel, a theatre, and a vaulted basement with bar.
The Benedictine Abbey of St. Mauritius in Tholey is said to be Germany%u2019s oldest monastery. Findings of a Roman public bath date back to the 3rd century AD.
the impressive Sainte-Marie-Majeure Abbey arose from the smaller Sainte-Marie-aux-Bois, located approximately 10 kilometres from Pont-à-Mousson.
built in 1248 in the heart of the small town of Vianden, the Gothic style church with its pretty cloister is one of Luxembourg%u2019s most important religious monuments.
