The landscape with the monasteries on the Saale and Unstrut rivers offers historical personalities, architecture, culture and education, spirituality, wine and enjoyment. So how about a trip to the monasteries steeped in history?

Memleben Monastery and Imperial Palace

At Memleben begin your journey at one of the oldest monastery sites on the Unstrut. At the former place of death of King Henry I and Emperor Otto the Great, a dreamlike monastery garden and a late Romanesque crypt offer an opportunity to rest. In the former enclosure of the Benedictine monastery, visitors can learn a lot about monastic life and about the death of rulers in the Middle Ages.

St. Claren Weißenfels - the third of the monasteries in Saale-Unstrut

After the visit of the Benedictines and Cistercians, the Sisters of St. Clare lured to Weißenfels. A cloister that comes to life again after 500 years, a scriptorium that enchants with musical sounds, Romanesque and Gothic building elements let the visitor dive into the past and feel the medieval monastery flair on the Saale and Unstrut rivers.
