Cloister Einsiedeln

Well, no one will be surprised to hear that also in Europe you can find a lot of historical buildings, especially churches. But this one is especially special. Why? Well it's not the long history that started in around year 990. No, it's the colour inside.

Well, no one will be surprised to hear that also in Europe you can find a lot of historical buildings, especially churches. But this one is especially special. Why? Well it’s not the long history that started in around year 990. No, it’s the colour inside.

The two main colours inside the church are turquoise and pink. When you are inside that church you got the feeling, as you would be inside a huge organ that is beating. I have seen many churches and domes and stuff all over the world, because I really like visiting them but I have never seen such a surprising strange colour mix. Apart from the colours, the church is cause of the Baroque style full with golden angels and other figures AND the black Madonna.

Behind the cloister you can see horses and monks walking around. In front of it, on the left and the right side from the steps (view picture) are a lot of shops where you can buy Christian stuff in many different variations and colours; pink and even phosphor. The space in front of the church is all two years the stage of the theatre – “World Theatre” of Calderon de la Barca.

Not too far away from the cloister is a ski-jump tower (view picture) where you can see sportsmen jump in winter, but also during summertime when they have training.

So Einsiedeln and its cloister are good places if you like unique churches and you can combine this visit with a trip on a mountain that is near.
