Stift Neuzelle

Around Berlin

This Cistercian monastery complex fronted by a beautiful garden is a rare baroque architectural gem in northern Europe; it's nicknamed ‘Brandenburg’s baroque miracle’. A custom-built subterranean museum displays two restored scenes from an 18th-century carved Passion Cycle rediscovered in a church attic in 1997. Stop by the monastery brewery to sample their delicious dark beer.
