Einsiedeln Abbey in Switzerland

We went to Einsiedeln to see the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln which is also known as the Einsiedeln Abbey or “Kloster Einsiedeln”. Since it was on a Sunday, we were fortunate enough that there was no mass when we arrived there at past 1:00 p.m.

Einsiedeln is a small municipality in the canton of Schwyz in Switzerland. Einsiedeln is best known for its famous monastery, the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln. It is probably the most frequented pilgrimage destination in Switzerland because of the Einsiedeln Abbey.

The Abbey Church was open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m but it was not allowed to take pictures inside the church.
