This is well worth a visit and let's you glimpse into the monastic life. The tours are only in German, but they do have an English language booklet to explain the rooms. The monastic life was definitely rigid and fulfilled through prayer, manual labor, and...More

We took our time around the abbey and grounds and spent 2 hours. I love the monastery grounds and also the Bebenhausen village. It's so quaint and I felt myself unwinding as we ambled leisurely to the abbey. You can get tickets for the abbey,...More

Full of history and architectural splendor. Well worth a visit. It's only a local bus ride from Tubingen. There are guided tours, but they are in German unless a large group of English speakers can organise one. If not, English speakers can do self-guided tours...More
