Amazing building with no fully completed survey of heritage and meaning. Must see. Only entrance via guide. Lorsch is a splendid small village not far from Frankfurt and Heidelberg

We visited the place solely because it's on the UNESCO WHS list. The area itself is very pleasant and peaceful. Grounds are smallish, quick to walk through. On weekends, there are locals having a picnic or just walking around. There's apparently a museum nearby, we...More

A UNESCO world heritage site, and rightly so. This is one of the landmarks of the region and realla a must-see. And it is for free. Located just off two of the main motorways, it is worth to have a stop to see the Torhalle....More

The grounds and restored building were interesting, but the museum was closed. A gift shop nearby had some nice souvenirs, but don't go just for the Abbey. Most of the area is private and buildings are closed to the public.

Unfortunately, the monestary itself has been the victim to the tooth of time and only a few original buildings remain. However, in the last years, the whole complex has been restructured and is now a quite decent park. Moreover, the city of Lorsch has done...More

This site basically consists of the gates constructed in the 8th century by Carolingians. Surprisingly, there are few sites relating to this epoque (compared with Roman, for example). The gate is quite interesting and ornate architecturally and the whole place is pleasant to stroll around.
