A WARM WELCOME TO LÜNE ABBEY
Not far from the centre of the historic town of Lüneburg is Lüne Abbey, founded in 1172 as a Benedictine nunnery. In midst spacious grounds and removed from the hectic of everyday life, it remains to this day an oasis of calm and reflection, but also a place of encounters, exchanges and culture.
Monastic tradition meets zeitgeist
Practised Christian monastic tradition meets with lively modern interaction. Concerts, readings, seminars and exhibitions form as much part of the life of the members of this Lutheran convent as singing evensong, attending services and conducting convent prayers.
Lüne Abbey – worth a visit!
Numerous visitors find their way to Lüne Abbey, whose rich history also continues to attract film companies to this special site. From April to October, the still almost completely preserved medieval complex can be seen on guided tours. And a visit to the abbey museum of sacred textile art is particularly worthwhile. Just outside the abbey gates, in the weaver’s shop run by the Heinz-Friedrich-Meyer Foundation, visitors can watch weavers working their looms during the opening hours. Sustenance and refreshments are on offer at the Café im Kloster in a beautiful original Renaissance setting.
You are cordially invited to be our guest!
