Walburg

The Benedictine abbey of Walbourg was founded in 1047. Barbarossa's father, Duke Friedrich von Staufen April 1147, and his wife Judith von Bayern found their final resting place there. The architecture is partly Romanesque and partly Gothic. A number of figures, the sacrament house and Gothic murals are remarkable from the point of view of furnishings.
