BEBENHAUSEN MONASTERY AND PALACE
Bebenhausen Monastery is ideally set in a clearing in Schönbuch, in a large forest south of Stuttgart – a paradise for hundreds of years. In the 19th century, parts of the medieval monastery were converted into a palace. This is where the last Württemberg royal couple spent their twilight years. Delicate medieval Cistercian architecture meets royal Württemberg residential culture – that comes across in a touchingly human way.
