    Default Catholic school for girls


    Build during the 1850's by the local monks as a seminary and later it became a school for girls.
    During the WW1 the childrens were send home and the building was used as a military hospital.
    Later, in the second worldwar, the buildings again became a military use.
    First as barracks for the soldiers, and after that as a school for Nazi youth.

    After a long and moving history the school, which include a big chapel, is left behind for several years now.
