Product Features and Details
Monastery, school, castle, exile seat or State Parliament – Bebenhausen Monastery looks back on an eventful history over the centuries. Limited Premium model built according to the present-day extension of the medieval Cistercian abbey located in Schönbuch in the Swabian Jura. The entire estate has developed around a late Gothic monastery with fountain hall following the arrangement of the most varied seclusion buildings, the ochre and limpid white stone masonry of which is dissolved again and again into a thin structure through high tracery windows. The vigorous pithiness and visual impact of that most diversified building and roof landscape result in particular from the monastic church with its richly ornamented central steeple erected above the intersection of the nave and the transept, which belongs to the masterpieces of late Gothic architecture and stonework art. The kit includes some parts allowing to drive the bell using a servo. A second stone garret storey crowns the former summer refectory of the monks that was later changed into the banqueting-hall in the south wing of the monastery. The spiritual life and the liturgy of that time are besides reflected in the various two storey seclusion buildings such as the capitular hall, study rooms, dormitories, library and kitchen.
