Niedernburg Convent

Niedernburg Convent with the grave of the Blessed Gisela

Situated in the heart of Passau’s Old Town, Niedernburg Convent was once a Benedictine Abbey and later the home of the ‘Englische Fräulein’ order. The Heiligkreuz-Kirche (Church of the Holy Cross) is a popular destination for pilgrims from Hungary, as the grave of the Blessed Gisela is located here: the Hungarian queen joined the convent following the death of her husband Stephen of Hungary and was consecrated as abbess.
