Cistercian Museum (Zisterziensermuseum Riddagshausen)

The Cistercian museum, which is located in the gatehouse and a portion of the former monastery in Riddagshausen, provides information on the history, development, culture and art of the Cistercian order from the height of its importance during the Middle Ages until the present. The architecture of the Cistercians, as a reflection of their ideals, is especially worth seeing.
