Don’t forget to visit the Benedictine Cloister next door with its vast fruit and vegetable gardens, they seemed to have been living off the land. The Kloster cafe is a nice way to finish off, it even has dishes called Benedictine toast, among other lovely...More

Seligenstadt is always wonderful and interesting! We wouldn´t miss spending summertime here. The Basilica is very captivating sight from far either driving your car or in the ferry or just walking or biking. I would recommend everyone to visit here.

Tradition, very beautiful buildings. If you want to eat real bread, domestic, as in ancient times in the courtyard is an old bakery. Bread does not dry quickly and does not curled. Bakery works once a week. Have a nice day.

Don't leave Seligenstadt without a visit to the Abby. As a Master Gardener, I highly recommend savoring the gardens and courtyards. The nearby cemetery should also be seen.
