    Parsonage

    by german_eagle Written Jun 12, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another remaining building from the Cistercian era is the parsonage. It is located behind the ev. parish church, right on one of the few relics of the wall enclosing the monastery. It has very massive walls, largely still from the Romanesque era. Of course the house was modified seveal times over the centuries, it got bigger windows e.g. I didn't have time to go inside, probably should have and asked for the key to the church ...

    Ev. parish church

    by german_eagle Written Jun 12, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 1739 the ev. parish church was built exactly on the site where the monastery church was. The choir, two chapels and the sacristy are still remains of the old Cistercian monastery church, in Romanesque/Gothic style. The church was renovated and redesigned a couple of times, very thoroughly in 1901/02 when an Art Nouveau style ceiling was added. I read that there are several beautiful epitaphs inside, the highlight is most likely the sarcophagus of Bernhard I Margrave of Baden (1364-1431).

    Unfortunately I could not see the interior. The church was closed, opening hours are very limited, only a couple of hours on Saturday, maybe Sunday, if I recall correctly.

    Allerheiligen Wasserfalle

    This is a magnificent waterfall which consist of 6 different waterfalls actually. They do warn you before you start that the journey is just under 1km. However what they do not tell you is that it is very steep with several sets of stairs that needs to be climbed. After the second set (by then you had climbed over 100 stairs), I decided that was it, so my sister continued, but turned back after the next fall did not see her way clear to climb the next 72 steps. It was worth it though judging from the photos that she took

    Freilichtmuseum

    This open air museum was really worth the visit. They show you the various building styles accross the black forest area and in some of the houses you will find people doing various local trades. The one lady and her husband were in the process of making house shoes and they were more than happy to answer questions.
