Kloster Bebenhausen was probably founded in 1183 by Count Palatine Rudolf I von Tübingen. The monastery was first settled by Premonstratensian chaplains and converted from about 1190 into a Cistercian monastery, among which was the expansion of the monastery and monastery buildings. The Cistercians were created through reforms from the Order of the Benedictines and spread from France across many countries in Europe. The monastery in Bebenhausen is one example for this European cultural heritage. In the course of safeguarding measures in some parts of the building, new research results were identified based on interdisciplinary cooperation which will be incorporated into the museum presentation in the monastery for future generations.
First results with focus on the 1335 built summer refectory will be presented at a conference on September 27th, 2018 in the monastery Bebenhausen, which is organized by the "Materials Testing Institute University of Stuttgart" in cooperation with "Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten Baden Württemberg", "Vermögen und Bau Baden-Württemberg Amt Tübingen" and the "Landesamt für Denkmalpflege im Regierungspräsidium Stuttgart".
