Imperial Abbey of Lorsch (Reichsabtei Lorsch) UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Gatehouse (Torhall) at Lorsch Abbey

The Imperial Abbey of Lorsch was one of the most renowned monasteries of the Carolingian Empire. Even in its ruined state, its remains are among the most important pre-Romanesque buildings in Germany. Its chronicle, entered in the Lorscher Codex compiled in the 1170s (now in the state archive at Würzburg) is a fundamental document for early medieval German history. Another famous document from the monastic library is the Codex Aureus of Lorsch. On the upper floor, remnants of carolingian murals and gothic frescoes can be seen. In 1991 the ruined abbey was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
