The scriptorium

Write like the monks...

... in the scriptorium on the gallery of the historic forester's house.

Letters in medieval script

The "scriptorium" on the gallery of the monastery café is the monks' writing room. Columns, writing desks and a display case with old writings, inks, pens and other utensils set the mood for a time when writing by hand demanded high concentration from the monks and received the highest recognition.

Our special offer is to try out for yourself under trained supervision how letters - in medieval script - are created with black ink and steel pen on paper.

On the adventure Sundays as well as the monastery days, admission to the scriptorium is free. You can also make an appointment for school classes or other groups: Tourist-Info Ihlow, Tel.: 04929/89-103,
