Corvey World Heritage Site

Experience a heritage of mankind just outside of Höxter. The former Benedictine monastery of Corvey was founded in the 9th century and had a significant influence on the political and religious processes in large parts of Europe. It was one of the most important monasteries of the early Middle Ages and is today certainly the most outstanding sight in the Weserbergland. However, it is not only the architecture that makes a visit worthwhile. Corvey has always been a centre of knowledge, education and culture. In addition to the permanent historical exhibitions and year-round guided tours, the museum also presents top-class cultural events.

Weser boat trip

When visiting the Weserbergland, a boat trip on the "Flotte Weser" is almost a must. You will get to know the Weserbergland from a completely different perspective. On the leisurely trip you have time to enjoy the landscape at your leisure. The section between Bad Karlshafen and the Corvey World Heritage Site is particularly beautiful. In the morning, the Weser ship "Höxter" starts the scheduled trip in Bad Karlshafen. From here, it continues via Höxter to Corvey before returning upstream to Bad Karlshafen.
