The History of Kloster Seeon

The Regional Administration of Upper Bavaria with its head office in Munich purchased the former monastery complex in 1986 and had it fundamentally renovated with a view to saving this cultural monument from further dilapidation and putting it to good use.
When the Centre for Culture & Education of Upper Bavaria was opened in mid-1993, Kloster Seeon Monastery once again moved back into the public eye, thus reviving centuries-old spiritual traditions in a new perspective.
Although there are no longer any monastic orders living in “Kloster Seeon”, the Benedictine rule still serves as source of inspiration and timeless guidance for its present-day use.
Conference guests, culturally minded visitors and tourists from all over the world have in the meantime re-discovered the jewel of Kloster Seeon.
