Botanical Garden

The 22 acres of gardens belonging to the abbey is an integral part of the monastery and of the everyday life of Benedictine monks since its foundation in 996. In the botanical garden of the abbey, more than a thousand species of plants and nearly 150 bird species live. From our everyday life there are commonly known arboreal and herbaceous plants like hazel, dogwood, linden, geranium and greater celandine. Unique species can also be found, such as eucommia and bully tree.
