Experience at first hand how a monastery complex was built in the Middle Ages in 40 years of construction


Our tour takes us to a unique construction site that takes us back to the Carolingian period. In 40 years of construction, craftsmen work with tools like in the Middle Ages on the monastery Campus Galli. Thanks to a guided tour we get direct information about the idea, development and the ups and downs of this unique project peppered with anecdotes.
After the guided tour we enjoy the medieval cuisine and can choose between
- Coarse bratwurst with the spices of the 9th century
- Wheat cakes, topped with sour cream and bacon or cheese
- From "Alb-Leisa", a regional lentil variety. With or without sausage. - vegan & gluten free
- I'm afraid we won't have any coffee. Coffee only came to Europe in the 16th century and was not known here in Carolingian times. For this there) is mead - the honey wine ;-)
