About Monastery Of St. Michael, Heidelberg
On top of the Heiligenberg Mountain is the monastery of St. Michael, most of it in ruins. The monastery has been left abandoned since the 16th century. The monastery was dedicated to the archangel St. Michael and all the saints. In 1070 the relics of Abbot Friedrich von Hirsau were kept here and the monastery became a place for holy pilgrimage. Interestingly, during excavation some artefacts have been found from the Roman period and before that.
