Visit the Steinfeld Monastery, with its three characteristic towers, situated on a hill ridge in the North Eifel. Its origins date back to the time of Henry I (919-936). The monastery basilica was built from 1142-1150 as one of the earliest German vaulted churches of the Premonstratensians. Inside the late Gothic vault paintings by the painter Hubert von Aachen and a rich Baroque interior have been well- preserved. The basilica is world famous for its unique Koenig organ from 1727 and the mortal remains of St Hermann Josef. Today pilgrims place apples on his table tomb.
After secularisation in 1802 the monastery was used for secular purposes until it was taken over by the order of the Divine Saviour in 1923. Today it is home to the Steinfeld Monastery Academy, seminar rooms and guest house, in addition to a grammar school. The monastery as an entire complex is one of the best preserved monastic monuments of the Rhineland, and is directly situated on the premium hiking trail EifelSteig.
