A Rhineland city with a famous Cistercian Abbey

Located near the German-French border in North-Rhine Westphalia, Kamp-Lintfort is probably best known for Kamp Abbey - the oldest Cistercian monastery in Germany, having been founded in 1123. The abbey is now a tourist attraction, but the town continues to thrive, with access to the region's dynamic industrial and services economy.
