City museum in the former Franciscan monastery
Museum in the monastery
The Saalfeld Franciscan Monastery was founded around 1250 by the Counts of Schwarzburg. The first documentary mention of the convent, located on the western edge of the medieval town, dates from June 16, 1265.
The monastery existed until the Reformation, but was dissolved in 1534 and thus lost its original function. A uniform use of the entire ensemble was no longer possible in the following period; instead, parts of the former monastery were now given new uses.
