Trip to Neuburg Abbey


Granted, the 880 year-old abbey may not be the most popular tourist destination in Heidelberg. The reason for this may be its slightly remote location; still, a visit is worthwhile, as eight participants of the leisure program can attest to.

At first, it was a bit quiet on the bus, but the ice melted quickly with the first group shot that was taken. From then on, conversation on past trips, F+U parties and similar topics flowed freely, once and again interrupted by a photo opportunity. Of those there proved to be plenty: getting out at Köpfel sports center, on the footpath in the forest, in front of a column with St. Benedict on top, or while eating cake.

Between all these photos, the participants were particularly taken with the abbey's donkeys and, of course, its history - especially the fact that the abbey was inhabited by nuns during the Reformation, who, by and by, were married and caused the abbey to close.
Today, the abbey is once more inhabited by male friars; some areas, therefore, are closed to visitors. Instead, we each enjoyed some coffee and one of the abbey's huge slices of cake. Only one question remains: What exactly is "Grieß"?
