Monastery Doors in Benediktbeuern/Bavaria

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

In the beginning of February when we finally had some nice and sunny days I visited Benediktbeuern Monastry and went for a circular hike through the Loisach-Kochelsee wetlands. At the monastery I saw some beautiful gates and doors.

Benediktbeuern Monastery is a former Benedictine abbey near Lake Kochel in Bavaria/Germany. Buron/Benediktbeuern Monastery was probably founded as early as 725/728 by Charles Martell as a secular base and as a guard and control station in front of the Kesselberg at a tactically favorable location on the road to Rome.
Between 1669 and 1679, the present baroque form of the monastery complex was created and the monastery church of St. Benedict was rebuilt from 1672.
The monastery was dissolved in 1803 in the course of secularisation. Since 1930, the Salesians of Don Bosco have again used the buildings as a branch of a religious community. Today, around 35 Salesians of Don Bosco live and work there.

In June 2020 an initial short trip after the first lockdown took me to Linz .

Linz is the capital of Upper Austria and third-largest city in Austria. It is located on the Danube. In 2018, the population was nearly 205.000. In 2009, Linz was European Capital of Culture.

During my stay in Linz I took a few photos of beautiful doors. Should have taken many more, but here are at least a few pictures.

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Today, I received the booster shot against Covid-19. So far, so good …

To celebrate, I took some door photos in Munich Old Town on my way back home. I also treated myself to a very nice Blueberry Tart and a large Capcuccino.
