The Benedictine Abbey of Weltenburg

History and Art

Located approximately five kilometers southwest of Kelheim at the entrance to the Danube Gorge is the Benedictine abbey at Weltenburg. Its extraordinary appeal resides not only in its unique geographical location, but also in its impressive Baroque architecture under the collaboration of pioneering artists, such as the Asam brothers. The newly edited Great Art Guide provides an introduction to the fascinating history, architecture, and décor of the abbey, as well as insights into the monastic way of life.
