Neuzelle Abbey- close to heaven The Seenland Oder-Spree without barriers
I had already heard a lot about Neuzelle Abbey. Yet for some reason, I had always put off visiting. My curiosity grew, though, when I read in the media that Cistercian monks from Heiligenkreuz Abbey in Austria were moving back in there. 200 years after the closure of the abbey in 1817, monastic life was returning to Neuzelle. I found that so exciting that I immediately started planning my trip.
