In a nutshell
A World Heritage site
scottishvisitor Says: The museum's two sections on 'Folklore' and 'History' has a wealth of displays which charter the every day life of the people and the monks who lived here in Lorsch during the early centuries. I particularly liked the model of the village and the Four Gospels, a hand written...
If you plan on visiting the Lorsch Abbey you may want to wait until the Summer of 2012 since everything is under renovation and everything is covered in scaffolding. According to the lady at the Information Center the gatehouse renovations will be completed in the Spring and the church renovations will be completed in the Summer.

Be sure to take a walk to the old abbey!
While exploring the Kloster near the city centre, you will learn that it was the second abbey built by the Benedictine monks. To find the old abbey, head out the gatehouse and turn right. You will begin to see signs to the "Altes Munster" - just 1,000 meters from the gatehouse. Continue to walk down the road, passing the tobacco field on the right. Once you get to the bridge, you should see a sign directing you to turn right towards the Altes Munster. Walk down this pathway (watch for cyclists!) and the old abbey will be on the right.
The canal you walk along is the waterway used by the monks and others from the town to get to the Rhein.
(The wild bee house is just before the old abbey.)
