Guided tour

Visit the pearl of the baroque architecture with a copy of the Turin Shroud, the place where the Codex Gigas, or the so-called Devil’s Bible was placed for more than 200 years.

Guided tour visitors can see the refectory – the former monastic dining room – where a copy of the Turin Shroud is exposed. It is a piece of cloth in which Jesus was wrapped after being removed from the cross and this copy is the only one to be found north of the Alps. Subsequently is a visit to the monastic library with its many unique prints, the mummiesof Vamberk, whose origins date back to the 17th and 18th centuries, and the sacristy. The last room visited on the tour is the richly decorated baroque church of St. Adalbert where the copy of the Turin Shroud was found in 1999.

Café Dientzenhofer offers  all its visitors:  tourists and  locals alike the opportunity to enjoy for a while in a unique setting what was once a former monastic grammar school. Our staff  offer  delicious coffee from the coffee-roasting plants of Trutnov, where a special mixture was prepared especially for the monastery café. Consequently this coffee  can only be sampled at Café Dientzenhofer. For  dessert you can choose something sweet from the cake menu or delicious freshly fried pancakes in both sweet and savoury versions. There is a wide range of ice-creams for young and old alike.

Educational programmes

Within the area of the monastery the project  Broumovsko je učebnice! (The Broumov region is a textbook) arose. This is a range of educational programmes for primary and secondary schools. The implementation of a significant part of this  is supported by grants from  the Hradec Králové region . On first glance the project may appear similar to other environmental programmes. However, in many aspects it is different. The programmes are conducted in the unique surroundings of the rock towns of Broumovsko, in a country of baroque monuments or directly at a National Cultural Monument – in  Broumov Monastery. The team of lecturers includes people who have professional experience in the protection of monuments or in preserving nature, artistic production, industry, tourism, marketing and economics.

We have managed to assemble an offer where the humanities and a natural scientific education are combined together with the possibilities to release the creative potential of both participants and lecturers. The imperative that all lecturers try to incorporate within all programmes is a simultaneous charter for the two spiritual values of : freedom and responsibility.  These are the variables, which when in opposition beingmany problems to the world and human society.

There are three bus stops in Broumov: Ayuntamiento (Městský úřad), Hotel Veba and the main bus and train station. During the day several dozen  buses arrive in and depart from Broumov,  usually heading to Náchod and Hradec Králové, but direct lines to Prague can be found as well.
