Mystical monasteries - places of energy in Rhineland-Palatinate

The living history of Rhineland-Palatinate is marked in many places by the powerful archbishoprics of Mainz, Cologne and Trier, which have influenced the fortunes of the people over the centuries and produced an incredible density of spectacular church buildings. Particularly impressive are the magnificent monasteries, abbeys, churches and chapels; sometimes preserved only as mystical ruins, they are nevertheless at the same time bastions of religious tradition, places of origin of innovative creativity and repositories of concentrated knowledge. In Rhineland-Palatinate, they are also closely linked to the often enchanted and mysterious natural landscape that surrounds them - creating peaceful retreats and places of power where you can find peace and become aware of yourself.
