Day 16 of #SchwarzwaldinSeptember : the Alpirsbach Abbey was a house of the Benedictine Order located in Alpirsbach in Baden-Württemberg. Dino Panda and Lambie just love visiting old historical buildings! .
It was founded in 1095 by Count Adaltbert of Zollern, Alwik of Sulz and Ruodman of Hausen, and settled by monks from Sankt Blasien in the Black Forest. It was dissolved as a Catholic monastery in 1535 during the Reformation by Duke Ulrich of Württemberg, but the buildings have continued in Protestant use for various purposes until present day.
Follow me to see where I draw these cuties tomorrow as they continue exploring the Black Forest in Germany!
