The Cistercian nunnery “Lichtenthal Abbey” is in the town of Baden-Baden (Germany) at about 25 minutes walk from the city center. It’s a very interesting ensemble formed by several abbey and domestic buildings standing around a quiet and pleasant triangular courtyard with a fountain in the middle. For acceding to the courtyard one must go through an impressive gateway dating... More

My friend and I visited Baden Baden on a weekday back in early October and took this tour. This is an absolutely beautiful place to visit if you are a history lover. However - only go if you do not mind being ridiculed (if you are from the USA). Our tour guide was a very well spoken, intelligent, and well... More

Today we then also ventured into the shop, where my Mum had the temerity to pick up a book and leaf through it. Just as she was about to take it over to the till to pay, the... More

Very close to downtown and a beautiful walk along the Lichtentaller Allee. We missed the tour, but spent some time in the Chapel. It is a beautiful old building, and the interior has lots of modern touches, but there is a remnant of a 13th century fresco and my favorite thing, a bas-relief of what looks like a knight in...

The visit was extremely interesting and rewarding. Tickets: just 3€. Unfortunately, if you don't understand German it will be of less use, as they do not offer the visited tour in english. What a pity!

I liked the chapel inside the Abbey grounds. It is a holy and reverent place to sit and meditate, pray, worship. The Cistercien Abbey is at the end of Lichtentaller Allee. It is an easy stroll along the beautiful sights of Lichtentaller Allee and the river Oos. We walked to it and also rode bikes there one other time.
