Welcome to the Minster of Bad Doberan

The most well preserved Cistercian furnishings in Europe

Along the "European Road of Gothic Brick Architecture" in north eastern Germany, close to the old Hanse city of Rostock, is the Minster of Bad Doberan, the Ex-Cistercian abbey dedicated in 1368.

The first abbey in Mecklenburg, founded in 1171, which was also used as the burial site for the regional rulers, became important both politically and historically.
