All Saints' Abbey

During our hiking in the Black Forest near Oppenau Germany, we stopped at the ruins of All Saints' Abbey.

The new chapel is visible through the ruins, but they still use the ruins themselves for meetings and theatrical productions, based on the chairs and stage set up there.

 Near the ruins is a memorial for members of the local hiking club, the Black Forest Assocation. There are 90,000 members in the club, and it was founded in 1864.
