‘WITH NATURE’S HELP,
HUMANKIND CAN SET INTO CREATION
ALL THAT IS NECESSARY AND LIFE SUSTAINING"
Hildegard Von Bingen
This is the Kloster St. Geogen in Stein Am Rhein in Switzerland. It is one of the beautifully preserved rooms in this quiet village.
St. George’s Abbey (Kloster Sankt Georgen) was a Benedictine monastery in Switzerland.
In or around 1007 Emperor Henry II moved St. George’s Abbey from its former location on the Hohentwiel in Singen (Germany) to Stein am Rhein in Switzerland.
In the 15th century the Abbey completely rebuilt its premises, which remain as a significant example of late Gothic architecture in the region.
Now it is one of the best preserved monasteries in Switzerland.
