The Heisterbach Monastery

Now lying in ruins, the Heisterbach Monastery was formerly part of a Cistercian Abbey built in 1189 along the chain of Seven Mountains, near Bonn. After the monastery was abandoned in 1803 following the victory of Napoleon, the church was left empty and sold off for construction materials. There now only remain the imposing remnants of the choir of the old church.
