The convent of Nonnberg was founded in 700 and it is now the oldest existing nunnery in the German-speaking part of Europe. During this long time, convent activities have never interrupted. To reach the convent you walk along the Hohen Weg from the Kaigasse to the Nonnbergstiege (Nonnberg stair), and from the district Nonntal you can reach the nunnery through a narrow alley. The Gothic church is famous for its panel altar (from the Gothic period), and the murals from the 12th century. The convent buildings, which were built between the 13th and the 19th century are not open to the public.
