The Abbey Church of St. Mary is a Baroque Hall church. I was able to go inside and it really is beautiful! There were many frescoes on the ceilings, and a most beautiful Altar. The choir stalls are in baroque style, built between 1687 and 1691 and are said to be some of the best in Germany.
Located near the Abbey Museum and well worth a look!
After exiting the Monastery, I walked around the side and found the Monastery Museum.
The beginning of the Museum was in 1975, and it has gradually expanded over the years. The Museum provides information on the Carthusian Order and the Charterhouse Buxheim.
There was a small entrance fee.
Located a few kilometeres from Memmingen, is the small village of Buxheim with its large Monastery complex. I went for a walk around the inside and couldn't find anything to see, probably because it is a boarding school & day care centre.
It is thought, the monastery was probably founded in 1100, given to the Carthusians as monastery, and used until 1812 as such. Only two monks and two lay brothers lived in the large Monastery in 1543.
From 1548, it was the only Imperial Monastery of the Holy Roman Empire of German nation.
