Information and reservation:

  • Allow about a 10-minute walk from/to the bus park­ing lot or ship land­ing stage, as it is not pos­si­ble to dri­ve through to the monastery.
  • From about May to Sep­tem­ber there is a shut­tle bus from/to the car park. Infor­ma­tion on this is avail­able from the monastery tav­ern on 09441 67570. Here you can also find out the cur­rent fees for the Wel­tenburg vis­i­tor car park.
  • The meet­ing point for guid­ed tours of the church is the vis­i­tor cen­ter, where pay­ment is made in advance in cash or by vouch­er. The group will then be received in front of the monastery church.
  • Book­ings are only valid with a writ­ten con­fir­ma­tion from us. Please give the tour guide a copy of this letter.
  • If you arrive late, the full tour or demon­stra­tion time can­not be guaranteed.
    Can­cel­la­tion fees: can­cel­la­tion up to 8 work­ing days before the appoint­ment free of charge, then EUR 30.00 per group and booking
  • In the event of non-arrival with­out can­cel­la­tion, the last report­ed num­ber of peo­ple forms the basis for calculation.
  • The num­ber of par­tic­i­pants can be changed free of charge up to 2 work­ing days before the date. This num­ber forms the basis for cal­cu­lat­ing the entrance fees. We release a tour guide.
