A palace within monastery walls
Inside the monastery area, a complex of buildings borders on an interior courtyard in the southeast. A roofed passage connects it to the conclave. When the monastery was active, there was a guest house, hospital, and abbot's kitchen here. Since the renovations under King Karl I of Württemberg, this part of the monastery complex has been called Bebenhausen Palace. For King Karl as for his successor, King Wilhelm II, and his wife, Bebenhausen was a private refuge far from the strict protocol of the court.
