Eifel-Blick "Königsberg"


Share content:

The Königsberg has a height of about 500 metres above sea level and is surrounded by richly structured forest, which is the habitat of many animal and plant species worthy of protection. It therefore belongs to the nature reserve "Auen und Hängen an Urft und Gillesbach", which is also part of the European system of protected areas "Natura 2000".

On the opposite side of the Gillesbach Valley, the Steinfeld Monastery rises in a westerly direction. The complex is considered one of the best preserved monastic monuments in the Rhineland. The history goes back over 1000 years.

During secularisation under French rule, the monastery was abolished in 1802 and fell into state ownership. The buildings subsequently served various secular purposes.

In 1923 the Salvatorian order took over the monastery and revitalized it. Since then, the Salvatorians have provided pastoral care, founded a grammar school and a boys' boarding school, and run a publishing bookshop, an educational establishment and a guest house.
