Monastery Inn Roggenburg

Description

A monastery has always been not only a place of spiritual contemplation, but also a source of physical well-being. "Do something good for your body, so that your soul may like to dwell in it." Following this guiding principle of St. Teresa of Avila, the monastery inn spoils guests with Swabian and monastic delicacies, coffee and cake or a selection of vespers. Special menus and a bus menu are offered for bus groups.

Since Count Bibereck donated his castle as a monastery in 1126, the Premonstratensian Canons have been at home in Roggenburg. The secularization in 1802 put an end to a 700-year monastic tradition. It was not until 180 years later - the buildings were used for other purposes several times in the meantime - that the fathers of the Premonstratensian order returned. In Roggenburg, the community of canons devotes itself primarily to parish pastoral care, educational work and cultural cultivation. In Roggenburg Monastery, history, spirit, art and culture are tangible and alive. The atmosphere is both relaxing and stimulating. Meditative places and communicative meeting places are as much a part of the monastery's essence as the balanced combination of spiritual life and secular being. Since 2013, the monastery building has been resplendent in its baroque beauty after many years of renovation. In 2015, the newly laid-out gardens were completed.
