Kloster Bursfelde

The Kloster Bursfelde in Bursfelde, belonging to Hann. Münden, Germany is an old Benedictine cloister dating back to the year 1093 CE. It is today used for meetings and concerts. The buildings are located at the place where river Nieme runs into the Weser.

The wonderful church (named St. Thomas und Nikolaus) is open to visitors every day from 8am to 6pm. You can simply walk in and enjoy the silence at this Roman basilica. By its special interior design it reminded my much on the churches I’ve seen in Israel. Inside you can find frescos from the 15th century.

One of the church bells has travelled quite far: it belongs to the cathedral of Königsberg (now Kaliningrad). It was created in Danzig (now Gdańsk) and has been found in a bell graveyard in Hamburg in 1952 and has then been brought to Bursfelde.
