As one of the few still complete monastery complexes in Europe, Neuzelle Monastery offers a unique mixture of architecture, culture and garden art, amidst the picturesque landscape south of Frankfurt - Oder.
The history of the monastery begins 750 years ago, when Margrave Henry the Exalted from Meissen founded the monastery in 1268. The Neuzelle Monastery is one of the most important art treasures in Brandenburg. With two baroque churches, the baroque monastery garden and the late Gothic cloister, Neuzelle is even one of the largest baroque and art monuments in East and North Germany.
In the jubilee year 2018, the whole ensemble will be effectively staged. There are concerts, festivals, and artistic installations and a new exhibition. The beautifully illuminated baroque garden is open to garden enthusiasts.
Friends of nature and active people will also find the surroundings of the monastery attractive, because the monastery is embedded in a varied landscape, for example the Schlaubetal nature park. Neuzelle is also located on the Oder-Neisse cycle path, making the monastery an easily accessible excursion destination for cyclists.
In front of the gates of the Cistercian monastery is also a brewery, where there has been active brewing according to the old craft tradition for over 400 years, and the monastery distillery, which is housed in a restaurant.
Tip: In the nearby Klosterhotel you can not only stay overnight but also eat well in the in-house restaurant.
