Weltenburg Abbey lies at the entrance to the romantic Donaudurchbruch (Danube Gorge) in the Weltenburger Enge nature reserve. The exceptional landscape with its rich diversity of species, together with the Abbey itself, creates a unique symbiosis of nature and culture.
The Abbey was founded by the Hiberno-Scottish Columbian monks Eustasius and Agilus around the year 600, making it the oldest monastery in Bavaria. The centrepiece of Weltenburg Abbey is the church, which was built and ornamented by the Asam brothers in 1716-1739. It is considered a masterpiece of European Baroque.
One of the main duties of the Benedictine community was to take in guests. The Guesthouse St. Georg was built for this purpose, and has space in its 57 rooms for 105 guests. The comfortable guest rooms inside the historical abbey walls are designed in a modern style with clean lines and contemporary technology and comfort.
The seminar area of the Guesthouse St. Georg has eight seminar and meeting rooms for groups ranging from two to 99 people. Depending on size, they are equipped with flip charts, pin boards, projectors and a screen or an 80” flat screen with audio system.
A barge cruise through the Danube Gorge or a walk around Weltenburg add the finishing touches to your event.
