Almost 440 years ago Altdorf became home to the first Capuchin monastery north of the Alps. The last six monks left it in 2009. In 2010 the former monastery was turned into a cultural centre managed by tenants.

The spacious venue with its terraced gardens exudes a southern ambience and invites visitors to stay a while and relax. At the core of the centre is a dye plant garden that extends over a number of levels. The collection currently comprises more than 160 dye plants. A tour of the monastery and the garden is included in the price.
