In the church with its characteristic tower is the doing of the monks with their prayer for unity: "ora et labora"! It is the central area of the baroque monastery.
It combines the monk-wing in the south with the guest and administrative wing in the north.
The premises south of the church are geared towards the forest, to the silence: they symbolize the "contemplatio" of the monk's life.
Those north of the church, the town of Altenburg turned out, here are guests, and even the emperor invited. In these parts of the abbey today live the Boys Choir, here are the rooms for the parish and for the administration of the monastery, they symbolize the "actio" of monastic life.
