In addition to traveling and photography, I really enjoy learning about history. This weekend was a special treat because I got a chance to visit a beautiful, historic monastery in Maulbronn, Germany with a friend. The site is known as Kloster Maulbronn.
The monastery dates back to 1147 and according to the website, combines a multitude of architectural styles (from Romanesque to late Gothic) which creates an interesting atmosphere. In 1993, the monastery was declared a USESCO World Heritage site and receives visitors from around the world.
It was a really great weekend for both history and photography!
