Memleben Monastery and Imperial Palace - Experience and enjoy
As the former residence of King Henry I and Emperor Otto the Great and the site of a medieval Benedictine monastery, Memleben has great appeal.
The Memleben Monastery and Imperial Palace Museum is an experience for everyone. All visitors, young and old, are actively involved in the exhibitions. In addition, the medieval architecture is overwhelming. An insider tip is the late Romanesque crypt of the 13th century monastery church.
 
Museum educational offer "Living Monastery
Monasteries have been places of creativity, writing, spirituality, science, music and medicine for over 1000 years. At the historic site of Memleben, interested school classes and private groups can experience the multifaceted everyday life and living environment of monasteries and take a short journey through time.
Participants in the Living Monastery slip into the role of a medieval Benedictine monk and elect their own monastery warden. The programme includes exploring the grounds, the monastery garden and the museum areas. A monastic meal according to Benedictine rule as well as a practical part under the guidance of museum staff round off the stay at Memleben Monastery.
 
Wine from the historic Memleben monastery vineyard
When the Saale-Unstrut region celebrated its 1000th anniversary as a wine-growing region in 1998, reference was made to a document of Emperor Otto III, with which he transferred various villages, lands and presumably also vineyards to the Memleben monastery.
The tradition of winegrowing was revived in spring 2012 by the Memleben Monastery and Imperial Palace Foundation. Since then, the grapes for the monastery's own Pinot Blanc have been ripening in a single vineyard.
 
Liquid gold from Memleben - monastery honey as a sweet souvenir
Just as the Benedictine monks once did, busy bees are now working at Memleben Monastery. In the monastery garden and a specially created flowering meadow to the east of the monastery churches, they collect nectar for the monastery honey from Memleben. Typical regional plants such as red clover, sorrel and ribwort form the basis. These were already known in the Middle Ages and could be found in the monks' garden. Whether the monks of Memleben already produced the liquid gold with their own bee colonies is not known, but it seems likely.
The monastery honey from Memleben can be purchased directly at the monastery gate and from the beekeeper Marko Ehmer.
