Ruins of Wörschweiler Monastery – a Place to Stroll

The ruins of the monastery in the vicinity of Wörschweiler are reminiscent of the Benedictine Abbey, which was founded in 1131 by Count Friedrich I von Saarwerden and his wife Gertrude. However, in 1171, the monastery passed to the Order of Cistercians. The monastery deteriorated by the XVII century. In 1614, the administrator decided to eliminate by fire the rodents and snakes, which had bred in the bushes. But because of the strong wind the flames spread to the building, and the monastery burned to the ground.

The Count Palatine Johann II planned to rebuild the destroyed buildings of the monastery, but he was impeded by the Thirty Years’ War. Excavations were organized at the end of the XIX century, during which old tombstones were found out. Today, most of them are kept in the Roman Museum. Another excavations, carried out in the XX century, resulted in finding an old chapel. Today, the ruins are owned by a specially created fund, they are well-groomed and are popular as a place for walking.
