Der September läutet den Herbst ein – die Zeit nach der Ernte, in der früher für die Wintervorräte gesorgt wurde: eine arbeitsintensive und zugleich gesellige Zeit mit vielen Festen. Besucher sind eingeladen, sich nach alter Tradition mit den Früchten und Schätzen der Gärten, Weinberge und Felder, besonders aus der klösterlichen Kulturlandschaft rund um das UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe Kloster Maulbronn, zu bevorraten. Kürbisse, Kraut und Rüben, Obst, Honig, frisch gepresstes Öl, edle Brände, Konfitüren, Pesto, Sirup und vieles mehr werden an Ständen im Klosterhof verkauft. Außerdem im Angebot des Marktes: Naturkleidung und Schuhe, Schmuck aus Naturmaterialien, Wollprodukte, Seifen und Besen. Mit zahlreichen Kinderaktionen ist beim Kräuter- und Erntemarkt auch für die Kleineren gesorgt. Beim Basteln mit Kräutern können die Kinder bunte und wohlriechende Kräuterkränze und dekorative Heukatzen herstellen. An beiden Markttagen finden laufend Führungen im Kloster statt. Informationen dazu erteilt das Infozentrum im Klosterhof (Telefon 00 49 70 43 92 66 10 oder info@kloster.maulbronn.de)

Bierzwnik : planting a three-year-old oak tree

Bierzwnik

The Association of Post-Cistercian Heritage Protection in Bierzwnik is involved into organisation of the annual festival „3 days on the Cistercian Route” as well as in the 5th International Cloister Goods Fair – the events to take place on 25th-27th July 2014. Everybody is welcome! Meanwhile, on 25th June, the Association is participating a celebration of planting a three-year-old oak tree which has been grown from an acorn of the three-hundred-year-old oak “Cysters” (Cistercian) from the park surrounding a former abbey in Rudy in Slask (Silesia). It has been an initiative of the Association of Cistercian Communes in Poland, the organisation established by several communes, including the one in Bierzwnik. The oaks, planted on the same day, at the same time, in all associated communes, are supposed to remind future generations of cultural heritage – its meaning and a need of its protection.

Bierzwnik’s Jubilee – 720 years on the Cistercian Route

Bierzwnik

In June 1294 a convent of Cistercian monks from the abbey in Kolbacz in Pomorze Zachodnie (Western Pomerania) arrived to their new location, which they called Silva Sancte Marie, in German Marienwalde, nowadays Bierzwnik. Their presence in this location lasted for only 245 years, while their influence on the area has continued for over seven centuries. Cistercian legacy has become a significant part of cultural heritage, and placed Bierzwnik within the European Cistercian Route. We are glad to announce that in this jubilee year Poczta Polska (Polish postal service) issued a postcard picturing the abbey in Bierzwnik (Fig. 1), as a part of their series ”The Cistercian Route in Poland”.
