Its beginnings reach back into the era of Heinrich I (919-936).The basilica connected to the cloister was built between 1142 and 1150 as one of the earliest German Premonstratensian arched church. Preserved in the interior are late Gothic arch paintings by the artist Hubert von Aachen and rich Baroque decorations. The basilica is world famous for its unique König organ from 1727 with its wonderful tones.
