the building:

The approximately 1.4 kilometre-long monastery wall has survived almost intact. It was erected between 1283 and 1290. It is in average 2.50 metres high and built in one operation by the same method. Over long stretches it is grounded in boggy subsoil. The wall was partly renovated in the 19th century, and sections are currently being restored. The wall is permanently accessible and embraces the Monastery area.
