Monastery Fischingen

Fischingen is the only lived-in monastery in the canton of Thurgau. The seven resident monks live according to the principles of the holy Benedict, “ora et labora” – pray and work. The Benedictine community welcomes guests who wish to share the monastic life for a limited time, though the option is only open to men.
