After a long day of castle adventures back in September that included visits to Schloss Weissenstein, Schloss Castell, Schloss Rüdenhausen and Schloss Wiesentheid, I also stopped by Kloster Bronnbach. Going to the monastery turned castle felt a bit like going to the end of the world. Arriving there from the direction of Würzburg, you pass woods, fields, more fields, and, yes, even more fields. Nestled deep in the Tauber valley, the little village today is a part of the town of Wertheim. The name might ring a bell for some of you and so it won't come as a big surprise that the Bronnbach Abbey was once the home of the Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg.
Good to know:
Guided tours of Kloster Bronnbach take place Tuesdays to Fridays at 2.30pm; on Saturdays at 11am and 2.30pm as well as on Sundays at 12pm and 2.30pm. Admission is five euros per adult. For more information, have a look here.
