Möncheplatz (former Augustinian-Hermits-Monastery)

Short facts

  • Einbeck

The square Möncheplatz is an important stop for public transport in proximity to the city centre.

The square Möncheplatz (monk square) is located in the East of the Old Town of Einbeck and it is a main transport hub. It received its name from the medieval Augustinian-Hermits-Monastery that once stood on the square.

Until 1775, the Augustinian monastery was located on Möncheplatz, then it was demolished. The stones from the monastery were used to build streets. The square that was called Königsplatz at the time was a place where the citizens of Einbeck used to meet until 1850.

Later on, the buildings of a secondary school were constructed on the square. Today there is a U-shaped parking lot on the green square. It disposes of a charging station for electric cars. Furthermore, bicycle boxes are placed on Möncheplatz close to the Blue Dye Printing where bicycles may be left safely locked. Via a zebra crossing you get to the street Lange Brücke that takes you directly into the pedestrian precinct and up to Market Square.

In the surroundings of Möncheplatz you will find a pharmacy, a bakery, the Blue Dye Printing Einbeck, a bank, a subsidiary of Deutsche Post and also the Einbeck police department.
