The Maulbronn Monastery, founded in 1147, is a spectacular example of Cistercian culture and is the best preserved monastery complex north of the Alps.
In the middle ages it was a significant political economic and social centre. After the introduction of the Reformation, the monastery was converted into a protestant monastery school (1556). The protestant Theological Seminary founded in 1807 is still in existence today.
In 1993, the Maulbronn Monastery was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
