The Mariannhill Monastery was established in 1885 by the Trappist order of monks. It is well worth a visit in order to get a taste of Austrian and German religious architecture and church interior. It is kept in pristine condition, has a small museum, a sophisticated colour printing works and a textile garment making outfit which supplies most of South Africa’s clergy.
