Wechterswinkel Abbey, founded around 1140 as a cistercian monastery, is one of the oldest women's monasteries in Germany. During its heyday from the 13th to the 15th century, over 100 noble nuns lived here. The convent was dissolved in 1589 and from then on served as a granary, and today it is dedicated to art and culture. The museum area, organised by the diocese of Würzburg, presents the eventful history of the monastery and the village of Wechterswinkel. There are also changing exhibitions of sculptures from the district's collection and from contemporary artists.
