St. Marienthal Monastery is the oldest Cistercian convent in Germany, located on the banks of the Lusatian Neisse River where Germany, Poland and Czech Republic meet. The abbey is still home to nine nuns. Visitors flock to Ostritz to see the church, the garden full of biblical plants and the easternmost vineyard in Germany. The Fruit and Wine Festival is one of the annual highlights in Upper Lusatia. You can relax in the lovingly restored guest rooms and enjoy numerous activities in the diverse natural surroundings, such as by exploring the region between the Zittau Mountains and the old town of Goerlitz along the Oder-Neisse Cycle Path. If hiking is your thing, you’ll find plenty of routes in the Jizera and Krkonoše Mountains before cooling off at Lake Berzdorf. St. Marienthal is part of the »Via Sacra« cultural route.
