We will be broadcasting LIVE from our permanent exhibition on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Corvey Monastery in Höxter on International Museum Day.
We will guide you through the imposing building and bring the Middle Ages, especially the reign of Charlemagne, to life in interaction with highlight finds from Westphalian archaeology.
Exactly 1200 years ago, in September 822, the Benedictine monastery of Corvey was founded on the west bank of the Weser near Höxter. In the first two centuries, the abbey developed into one of the leading intellectual centres of the region and far beyond. Its former importance is still visible for miles around in the impressive Carolingian westwork, the only one in the world that has been almost completely preserved. Together with the traces of the Civitas Corvey, a former settlement at the foot of the monastery, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014.
