Lorch Monastery

The rise and fall of the House of Staufen is still fascinating reading today: The Benedictine monastery at Lorch is a place where the splendor of this noble family remains visible. Highlights include the tomb of the House of Staufen in the Romanesque monastery church and the impressive mural by Hans Kloss in the chapter house, where visitors can see the varied history of the House of Staufen play out before their eyes in vivid color.

The art guides by the State Palaces and Gardens of Baden-Württemberg depict the fascinating history of Lorch Monastery, which spans almost 2,000 years, from traces of Romans on the monastery mountain to the reception of the House of Staufen in the 20th century. A tour of the monastery complex offers detailed information about the buildings and furnishings.
