A day in Altomünster

The name Altomünster comes from Alto, a Scottish monk, who built a hermit cell about 750 which developed into a Benediktiner monastery and a market place.
1496/97 Duke George the Rich established nuns and monks in the Order of St. Birgitta of Sweden (1303 - 1373).

Nowadays the municipality has about 8000 inhabitants, the centre area about 4000.
