Description

The church of St. Hildegard’s Abbey was built in the years 1900 to 1908, commissioned by Prince Karl zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, one of the leading luminaries in German Catholicism during the 19th century. Prince zu Löwenstein, who had set himself to revive the tradition of St. Hildegard’s monasteries at this historic location, asked P. Ludger Rincklage, a monk of the Maria Laach Abbey and an architect by profession, to plan and build the church. The foundation stone was laid on 2 July 1900; the church was consecrated on 7 September 1908.
