"Seiburg's Iconic Monastery"

Situated on the Michaelsberg and overlooking the town of Siegburg, is the Michaelsberg Abbey. It was previously known as the Benedictine monastery belonging to the Subiaco Congregation. Founded in 1064 by Archbishop Anno II, the abbey caught fire in the 18th Century and later rebuilt to the current baroque building complex. Over the years it was used as an army barrack, a mental hospital and as a prison. In 1914, the abbey again fell under the care of the Benedictine convent during World War II. In 2010, the community voted for the termination of the abbey due to its declining financial situation. Today the abbey is open to public visitations and can be explored on a guided tour.
