Monastery of St. Johann Müstair

The Carolingian Chapel of the Holy Cross may only be visited with a guided tour. Today it stands a bit off the beaten track, but was formerly integrated into the monastery complex. Like the monastery church, the chapel dates back to the 8th century and thus from the time of Charlemagne.

Upstairs, the original Carolingian mortar floor is visible. Up to ten layers of paint and whitewash once covered the walls of the Chapel of the Holy Cross. During the guided tour you will gain insight into the wall paintings from the different eras and learn more about the former precious furnishings of this chapel.

On these days, there is also a guided tour of the church and monastery museum at 1:30 p.m. If you take part in both guided tours (Church & Monastery Museum and Chapel of the Holy Cross), you will receive a reduced entrance fee. Ask at the monastery shop.

Opening hours of the monastery museum:
Weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. | Sundays and public holidays from 1:30 p.m.
The monastery shop is open daily until 6 pm.
