Relax in a monastic atmosphere

The Martin-Knoller centre lies at the edge of the monastery grounds of the Neresheim Benedictine Abbey. It is the youth hostel linked with the conference and retreat centre in the Neresheim monastery, and provides a quiet contemplative place to stay for young people and families. The centre is perfect for training and personal orientation, but also for relaxing and convivial get-togethers.
By arrangement, we are happy to provide support for groups in determining the content of their visit. One example of this is our "Ein-Blick ins Kloster" (Inside the Monastery), which is designed to give participants a better understanding of life around the monastery.
Visitors at the Martin-Knoller centre are welcome to use the restaurant, conference rooms and other facilities in the conference centre of the Neresheim monastery. It only takes 3 minutes to walk between the two buildings.

Double rooms

Guests can relax in our 8 double rooms with shared shower / WC. We can arrange the rooms with double beds or bunk beds, as required.  Each room has washing facilities and plenty of storage for clothes and other important items.

The images that you can see here are only examples: all the rooms are different sizes, and are individually furnished and equipped.


You can choose between 2 triple rooms, 2 four-bed rooms, 2 six-bed rooms and 1 eight-bed room. Each room has washing facilities and plenty of storage for clothes and other important items. The rooms have a shared shower. 

Your options at the centre

The Martin-Knoller centre is a separate building best suited for family leisure time, orientation days, and young people’s leisure time. Three large meeting rooms are perfect for creativity, fun and reflection, for 10-50 people. Both the smaller rooms are perfect for workshops involving up to 15 people. The rooms are equipped with the latest conference technology.  There is a kitchenette in the building, and outside there is a barbecue area and a volleyball court: learn, play, explore together.
