Maulbronn Monastery – Part I

Last week my friend an I went on our monthly photo outing. Our destination wasn’t far away yet I’d never been there before. Maulbronn monastery, founded in 1147, hasn’t been a working monastery for several centuries but is very well preserved, and was added to the World Heritage List in 1993.

We were lucky to be there on one of the hottest days so far this year and enjoyed our day immensely. It was a good thing we soaked up some sun before going inside, because it was really cold inside this huge building. Luckily it has an inner courtyard you can step into. It offers a place to sit down, look around, and contemplate your surroundings. It also has the most magnificent magnolia tree I’ve ever seen.

Today’s pictures are of the outside and surroundings of the monastery.
