In the middle of the Harz Mountains, known for its picturesque nature and exceptional atmosphere, lies the Michaelstein Monastery. This historic monastery is not only a place of spirituality, but also a sought-after destination for a large number of visitors every year who are looking for peace, culture and a unique experience.

The history

Michaelstein Monastery was founded by Benedictine monks in the 12th century and originally served as a monastery and music centre. Today it houses a museum of musical instruments and offers visitors an insight into the fascinating world of music history. As soon as you enter the monastery, you sense this unique atmosphere, marked by centuries of devotion and musical dedication.

The Museum of Musical Instruments in Michaelstein Monastery houses an impressive collection of over 200 historical musical instruments from different eras. Here, visitors can take a journey through music history and admire instruments that can otherwise only be seen in books or recordings.

A place of silence

A highlight of the monastery is the restored monastery church, which is a wonderful place of silence and reflection. Here, visitors can take part in spiritual events and concerts, or simply enjoy the peace and quiet and contemplate. The impressive architecture and ornate decorations of the church convey the feeling of having arrived in another time.

A visit to the monastery church is therefore perceived by many visitors as a real time-out from the hectic pace of everyday life.
