Overview
More
With stained glass windows that are famous throughout Europe, Königsfelden Monastery has been the shining jewel of Windisch for 700 years. The church windows of Königsfelden Monastery are among the finest specimens of late medieval stained glass in the whole of Europe. The church and double monastery were founded as a commemorative site for the Habsburg dynasty by the widow of the German King Albrecht I of Habsburg, who was murdered in 1308. A selected programme of guided tours, events, workshops, Habsburg culture trips and audiovisual guides breathes new life into this historic setting.

This beautiful Gothic church has some of the best medieval stained glass windows I have seen anywhere. Also very interesting history - well explained on the free audio guide (in English, or language of your choice) which is well worth it.
