Nütschau Priory

Nütschau, Germany

Nütschau Priory is a Benedictine house located in the former Nütschau manor house. The manor was built in 1577-1579 by Heinrich Rantzau, this community originated after World War II as a refuge for displaced persons, particularly Catholics from the former German territories.

The church acquired the site in 1951 and at the request of Hermann Wilhelm Berning, the Bishop of Osnabrück, it was developed by and staffed from Gerleve Abbey. St. Ansgar's House opened in 1951. In 1955 the community was raised to the status of a priory under Gerleve, and in 1975 Nütschau became an independent monastery, which now includes a training house and a youth house.

Very nice church, wonderful location, a pleasant place. Sometimes it "feels" a little too much. That may have been due to my wrong expectations ...

Bad treatment of employees! In front of the guests! The management must be ashamed!

It was my third time visiting the monastery in 2019. I also booked for this year shortly before departure because the number of guests is very strong as I noticed when I made my first booking. No worries about the monastery there are people like you and me as a guest in the monastery looking for relaxation and tranquility. If you are looking for advice, one of the monks would be happy to help. Only the surroundings, which warmly invite you to take a walk, ensure tranquility. With moor, forest and meadows you are well supplied here. That is also the case with the food, which is rich and freshly prepared every day for every guest in their own kitchen. The monastery itself is clean and tidy, not like some people think 1800 century monastery no I can not confirm. The rooms with a shower room equipped single room in the quiet area that I use. Please check the whole thing again on the page. What I can only say if you need relaxation and are looking for peace and quiet is in good hands at the Nütschau Monastery.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
