Maulbronn Monastery is one of the most completely preserved medieval monastery complexes. This is why in 1993, UNESCO designated the impressive monastery as a World Heritage Site. Set in the heart of the fields and vineyards of the Stromberg-Heuchelberg Nature Park, the journey there will put you in the mood for the monastery experience. The former Cistercian monastery is an ensemble of top-class architecture and works of art ranging from the Romanesque to the Late Gothic. At a later date, it became a school with a number of famous graduates, including the astronomer Johannes Kepler and the Nobel Laureate Hermann Hesse.
