Rüeggisberg Priory Ruins

Built in the 11th century, the priory was a significant example of medieval architecture; the ruins are a point of interest along the Way of St. James.

The landmark of the town of Rüeggisberg, the priory ruins are significant site for pilgrims along the Way of St. James and a popular destination for day-trippers.

The historic site has been used increasingly for special events over the past year. The Advent market in November is held within the walls of the ruins, and a series of open-air concerts and theater productions, known as Klostersommer Rüeggisberg, entertains guests during the summer months.
