A nice pit stop after seeing Hardenburg Castle. It didn't take us long to explore, maybe 20minutes tops. The Abbey was built in 9th and even has the grave of a Queen in it from 1038.

This Monastery is consisted only of ruins. It is beautifully situated in the forest. We reached it through the woods, starting the hike from Hardenburg. It was a nice visit. We then continued the hike into town.

I like to visit these old places and feel the energy of times long gone. This ruin is really worth a visit.

Great location for Fotoshooting or marriage. I did a fotoshooting and the pictures turned out great. A little restaurant is there too. Great view, parking spaces infront of the location.

The ruins of Limburg Abbey are accessible either by driving (there is a carpark right in front), or by hiking. I did the latter, and the walk took me about 30-35 mins from Bad Durkheim train station, past a cemetery and residential area and along...More

What a view!! Worth the narrow road/drive. Walls are well preserved-no roof left after 900 years. Walk the grinds or take a scenic hike!! Fun place to visit and a restaurant too.
