The abbey is located at the end of Lichtentaler Allee in a bend of the Oos. It is enclosed by a monastery wall that largely keeps out the noise and bustle of the city. The monastery was founded by Margravine Irmengard of Baden in 1245 as the burial place of the margraves of Baden. Cistercian nuns have been praying and working at this site for 775 years.
Note: The parking situation around the Lichtental Monastery is problematic. We recommend the use of public transport to get there.
