“The walls were erected by unexpected haste and the walls spaciously encompassed the whole abbey’s circumference. The abbey shot up and the rapidly constructed church grew as if it had a living and movable soul” (Bernhard of Clairvaux)
You can see the abbey exhibition on the abbey’s first floor. Here you will learn more about the history of Esrum Abbey, the Cistercian Order and life at the abbey.
Immerse yourself in the story of the abbey’s “rise and fall”, from the beginnings of the Cistercian Order to the founding of Esrum Abbey and its influential position, all the way to the Reformation where all of it was passed on to the king.
