The Story of Troand

The spiritual tradition of the Benediktushof dates back to the 8th century. Around 750, a Main-Franconian count named Troand answered the Pope’s call to found monasteries.

In a quiet valley, he built the picturesque Benedictine monastery „Holzchiricha“ located by a stream and surrounded by forests.

The initiative of Zen master and Benedictine monk Willigis Jäger saved the monastery complex from decay in 2002. Like Count Troand, Jäger gave meditation and contemplation a space.

As a center for meditation and mindfulness, the Benediktushof is now experiencing a new era. To honor its founder, the name TROAND was chosen for the house-owned bistro.
