The impressive Klosterkirche St. Marien monastery church in particular, which formed part of the former Cistercian monastery, can still be admired today. The abbey itself was founded in 1165 and it took another 68 years until the church was consecrated in 1228. The number of properties belonging to the monastery grew rapidly in the years after it was founded. In 1373, for example, the abbey owned 40 villages and five monastic farms.

The monastery was significantly involved in the expansion of the region during the Middle Ages: Lowlands were drained, forests were cleared, farmland was created and villages were established. However, the decline of the monastery began at the end of the 14th century. The monks could no longer find any new blood and in 1431 the monastery was looted by the Hussites. Finally, many monks left the monastery at the beginning of the Reformation at the start of the 16th century and embarked on a new path. The Saxon Elector Johann Friedrich moved into the monastery in 1541 and the convent dispersed.

A hunting lodge was erected instead of the abbey in 1550. A new period of prosperity only emerged in the middle of the 17th century: from 1664 onwards, the town of Dobrilugk was established under a short branch of the Wettin dynasty – at that time like today, only the church building was a reminder of its past history as a monastery. The monastery church is now a venue for numerous events. In the castle there is a museum on regional history, amongst other things.
