In 1212 the history of the Cistercian abbey Marienstatt began. Today the popular place of pilgrimage is considered one of the spiritual and cultural centres of the Westerwald. The Cistercians founded their monasteries in remote places to seek God in solitude and to serve the people in prayer. This is how Marienstatt was born in a narrow valley of the Nisters on the north-western edge of the Westerwald.

The abbey's private grammar school, the guesthouse, the book and art shop and the your own brewery.
