Unfortunately you cannot actually enter the church but can only look in through a grille. Otherwise the view of the surrounding countryside is great

I traveled to Kloster Banz from Munich by train. Kloster Banz is a nice city with historical touch. I stayed in the castle which is really nice and probably the main attraction of the city. People are warm and humble.

This monastery is really impressive from the outside, but unfortunately the general public can not access any p[art of the building. Even the church has restricted access. The church, however, has guided tours but did not offer them on the day we were there.
