Bebenhausen Monastery was founded in 1183 by Count Ruldolf of Tubingen. The first occupants of the monastery were monks, the monastery is very well preserved considering its vast history. The abbey church in 1228 was consecrated.
The completed monastery was finished in the 13th century. Today’s standing monastery was completed in the 15th century. As I am sure you can appreciate, the monastery is a truly beautiful building and a timeless piece of architecture. The monastery institution was closed in 1535 and the abbey church as de-constructed in 1537.
Christopher von Wuttermberg reconstructed the church and from this formed a protestant school, however the school later closed in 1806. A royal hunting building was formed in the 1800′s for the royalty of Wurtemberg. Upon visiting the monastery there a vast amount of artefacts to see, the 12th century monastery really is a sight to behold. Both exterior and interior features are well worth a look, with stained glass windows and impressively decorated ceilings. The monastery is located in Southern Germany.
