The Drübeck Abbey

The Benedictines used to live at Drübeck Convent, in a distance of only a few kilometres. The Kloster St. Vitus was probably built in around 960 and the relating abbey church has been marking the town silhouette until today. Drübeck Convent belongs to the Lutheran Church of Central Germany and is today a conference site, pastoral college, pedagogic-theological institute and at the same time a haven. The spacious premises with its uniquely restored convent gardens invite you to linger.
