Kloster Niederehe

Niederehe Monastery

The former Augustinian monastery was built from 1162 to 1175. In 1226 the order changed to the Premonstratensians, and in 1505 the women's monastery became a men's monastery of the Premonstratensians.

In 1803 the monastery was dissolved and auctioned off, along with the brewery and mill. Particularly worth seeing is the old monastery church of St. Leodegar, whose oldest parts date back to the 12th century. The grave of Phillips von der Mark and his wife Katharina von Manderscheid is located in the late Romanesque hall building. Another highlight is the oldest playable organ in Rhineland-Palatinate - the newly restored baroque Balthasar-König organ from 1715.
