Kloster Plankstetten / Plankstetten monastery

Montags fuhren wir ein paar Kilometer, um Kloster Plankstetten anzuschauen. Dort gibt es biologische Landwirtschaft, einen Laden, wo die Produkte daraus verkauft werden, einen wundervollen Biergarten und einen lohnenden Buchladen. Ich schleppte 3 neue Gartenbücher nach Hause!

On Monday, we drove a short distance to the Plankstetten monastery. They farm organically and sell some of their products in the monastery shop. There also is a lovely beer garden and a very interesting book shop. I snapped up three books about gardening!

Der schöne Innenhof / The lovely inner courtyard


Grace bewundert die Blumenbeete. Sie hat sich passend zur Gelegenheit etwas Rustikales angezogen.

Grace admires the flower beds. She dressed up for the occasion in something pastoral.


Der Kirchturm - rechts hinter dem Tor geht es in die Klosterkirche, und gegenüber ist der Biergarten, wo wir uns vom Besichtigen erholen konnten. Weil die Saison vorbei war, fanden wir locker Platz.

The church tower - right behind the doorway is the church entrance, and opposite to it the beer garden, where we could relax after the sight seeing. As it was the end of the summer holiday season, it was easy to find a free table.

  2. Lovely :) We also love to visit old churches, monestries and abbeys when we go on holiday. Are there still monks there who do the farming? I noticed the aramanth behind grace :)

    1. The monastery is still active, but I'm not certain if the monks actually do all the farming. They supervise it, of course.

    1. It is very nicely built, and since it is still working, and they also offer guest rooms, it' all in good shape and repair. A great place!

  4. I love the stone clock and bell tower, and the red roofs against the blue sky.

  5. Looks a rather fab place for the past monks to have been living in.
    No sign of any poverty here.
