The small town on the Bergstrasse is home to a great historical heritage. Lorsch Monastery, founded more than 1250 years ago, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As an impressive relic for the spiritual place where Charlemagne once lodged, the so-called King's Hall still bears witness today. The visitor centre lets you relive spiritual life and the Lauresham open-air laboratory lets you relive rural life in the world around 800.
