Group trips & travel companies
The Harz region has plenty of places worth seeing, but Michaelstein, with its idyllic location in a Harz valley, is a real gem. You could spend hours and days exploring its meadows, fields and woods, fishponds and the monastery itself. Whether you travel individually, on a guided tour, for a concert or during an event, the gardens and historical grounds provide a breathtaking backdrop. Michaelstein is a good base for day trips and longer hikes on foot or by bike; accommodation is available – right in the abbey courtyard – at the hotel and inn “Zum Weissen Mönch”. We create a full, individual package tailored to your wishes.
Looking for a special place for your travel group? Michaelstein is well worth a visit all year round. Discover Michaelstein’s musical world on the combined “Dreiklang” tour. Afterwards, pop into the hotel and inn “Zum Weissen Mönch” for lunch or coffee and cake. Separate areas are reserved in the visitor car park just for coaches. Just a few minutes’ walk and you are in the unique monastery landscape.
We will be happy to offer you advice and put together a package.
