Medieval monastic life in the Black Forest

The northern Black Forest and the Stromberg Nature Park are both rural and remote, and are part of what lends this region its charm. Maulbronn Monastery, Hirsau Monastery and Alpirsbach Monastery are all located here, and their power is still palpable today.
