The Monastery had come in the posession of the Pricnely Family after the Secuulariation in 1806. In 1986 it was sold to the Main-Tauber county. It was among others used by them as Residence. The Fürst grow up there with his 6 sisters. In this Tour the rooms where the Princely Family once lived where shown and he told many ancedotes from his childhood. The rooms are now empty or used for other functions but it was very interesting with all the story told.
