Oberwesel Travel Tip:
Minorite Monastery, Oberwesel
One of the jewels of medieval Oberwesel is an ensemble consisting of the ruined church, monastery garden and sacristy of the former Franciscan Minorite monastery. The sacristy is especially worth seeing and its unusual form is of particular architectural value. During comprehensive reconstruction work carried out in 2006/07 it was restored to its original 15th century condition.
Today, both monastery garden and sacristy are privately owned; however private tours are available via the Kulturhaus Oberwesel at http://www.kulturhaus-oberwesel.de/en/museum/angebote_fuer_besuchergruppen.aspx.
Address: Rathausstr. 23, 55430 Oberwesel
