Corvey – Abbey, Castle, Museum

The former Benedictine abbey of Corvey is considered to be one of the most important monastic establishments in medieval Germany and is shortly due to be appointed a UNESCO World Heritage site. After nearly 1000 years of monastic life, today’s visitors are received into a baroque castle complex under ducal ownership.

The early medieval westwork, the baroque monastery, as well as the princely library with about 75,000 volumes, fascinate guests from all over the world. A visit to Corvey is a splendid experience with its museum, castle restaurant, the Corvey wine house and the Weser Activity Hotel - Corvey is close to the Weser cycle path, too.
