Fascinating, but quite small. The good thing is it feels authentic and ancient. We saw it at night and it only gave it a even more "ancient" feel - we were the only people there at that time!

The monastery in the 14-hundreds was not a first-rate address in either power or scholarship, but it did well enough. So when the monastery was secularised in 1526 after the Reformation, and the monastery became just a residence, the artistic achievement at the cusp of the transition was frozen in time.
There are more spectacular places to see, but St. Georgen in my mind takes the prize in sheer relevance: being in the right place at the right time.
If you're in Stein am Rhein (not on a Monday), and you have a modicum of grasp on European political and artistic history around 1500, and this is what gets your jollies, you can't miss this.

Located on the shore of the Rhine, this former Benedictine Abbey is definitely worth a visit. Although it is basically an empty building the history is amazing. The murals remaining are worth it alone.If you like history this is a fascinating and interesting place to visit.
