Guided tour of the Chapel of the Holy Cross
The Carolingian Chapel of the Holy Cross may only be visited on a guided tour. Today it stands a bit off the beaten track, but was formerly integrated into the monastery complex. The chapel - like the monastery church - dates from the 8th century and thus from the time of Charlemagne.
Upstairs, the original Carolingian mortar floor is visible. Up to ten layers of painting and whitewashing once covered the walls of the Chapel of the Holy Cross. In the guided tour you will get an insight into the wall paintings from the different eras and learn more about the former precious furnishings of this chapel.
On this day, there will also be a guided tour of the church and monastery museum at 14:00. If you take part in both guided tours (Church & Monastery Museum and Chapel of the Holy Cross), you will receive a reduced admission price. Ask in the monastery shop.
