Seligenstadt is always wonderful and interesting! We wouldn´t miss spending summertime here. The Basilica is very captivating sight from far either driving your car or in the ferry or just walking or biking. I would recommend everyone to visit here.

Tradition, very beautiful buildings. If you want to eat real bread, domestic, as in ancient times in the courtyard is an old bakery. Bread does not dry quickly and does not curled. Bakery works once a week. Have a nice day.

We spent an afternoon wondering through the gardens of the Abbey. The variety of apples, pears and plums as well as flowers were so interesting as well as beautiful to enjoy. The fresh bread that was sold in the afternoon was so worth the wait.
