Bad Herrenalb - Spa And Monastery
Like all those spa towns, Bad Herrenalb has a pretty park for the spa visitors to walk and relax in. It has beautiful old trees and many benches and wide snowy areas that will be lush green lawns in summer.
Herrenalb also used to be a monastery in former times. Some buildings are left. The old abbey church is in ruins. The church you see today is much younger, though it uses a part of the old church as choir.
This is a leftover of the old church.
I am sitting in one of the windows of the ruin.
Among the ruins I met this monk. I asked him about the place and enquired about life in the monastery. But he would not speak to me.
Later I learned that they are not allowed to talk. Their rules oblige them to keep silent.
