St Mang's Monastery

back to overview




If you go through the gateway into the Great Courtyard of St Mang's monastery you have the best overall view. Already from the outside, but also here in this square area of buildings, you hardly gain the impression that you are entering a monastery. In the years 1701 to 1717 Johann Jakob Herkomer, the architect of the monastery, created a new baroque monastery complex on the old romanesque foundations that is more reminiscent of a palace, whose Italian features you cannot fail to see. The abbots of the Benedictine monastery, who were fond of building, have thus conspicuously emphasised that their monastery was not only a centre of intellectual and spiritual activity, but also of trade and power in the country around Füssen.
