The new labyrinth has now an own front door in the fence around the monastery gardens near the Saint Alfons church. It is situated along the Mittlerer Neubergweg, which is connected with the Mathias-Ehrenfriedstraße. Everybody is invited to visit the labyrinth. It is opened from dask to dawn.
On the 18th of September, 2011 was the inauguration.

The labyrinth – a very expressive symbol which is already known for over 3000 years. Originally emerged probably around the Mediterranean.
During the last years there is a sort of „labyrinth Renaissance” – in towns like Zurich, for example.
Petra Langer has got to know from a new labyrinth in the Würzburg district Keesburg.
Curiously she moved off
I accompanied her.
