The former monastery site with its outstanding Baroque abbey church "Mariä Himmelfahrt" at its heart is definitely the town’s attraction.

 

 

 

In 1256 Louis II., Duke of Bavaria (“the Severe”), had his wife Mary of Brabant executed due to mistaken suspicion of adultery.
In 1263 Cistercian monks founded the monastery on the “prince field” whose building the Pope had imposed on the Duke as a penance for his crime and which was handsomely endowed by the Duke and his son, the future Emperor Louis the Bavarian.

In the aftermath of the Reformation turmoil and the Thirty Years’ War Abbot Martin Dallmayr (1640–1690) succeeded in creating the preconditions for a comprehensive internal and external new start. In 1691 the foundation stone of the Baroque monastery buildings was laid, in 1700 the building of the abbey commenced under the architect Antonio Viscardi. The brothers Cosmas Damian and Egid Quirin Asam were primarily responsible for the interior decorations.
