The monastery includes the cloister buildings, which contain a chapter house, the winter and summer refectory, the cloister, a dormitory, the abbot's rooms, a banquet hall and the abbot's chapel.
Furthermore, you can visit a guest house and various farm buildings in the complex.

Of particular importance are the late Gothic cloister and the so-called banquet hall, built under the last abbot of St. Georgen, David von Winkelsheim. Here are the most important surviving fresco paintings north of the Alps from around 1500.

Lindwurm Museum

In the middle of the old town of Stein am Rhein, the Lindwurm Museum gives you a close-up look at how a middle-class family lived and did business around 1850, on an area of over 1500 m2. In the front house you can explore the storage cellar, Biedermeier salon and attic. The tour continues to the back house with granary, servant's room and stable, and in the courtyard there are live chickens. For the young audience, a playroom offers the opportunity to dress up and rehearse in straw beds. The detailed furnishings make the burgher house an extraordinary experience for the whole family.

Town Hall on the Rhine

The town hall was built in 1539-1542, the half-timbered construction in 1745/46. For a long time it also had the function of a cloth, grain and department store. It got its present shape in 1898-1900, when the market hall was closed and the bay window and paintings were added.

The history paintings were made by the history painter Carl von Häberlin from Stuttgart, the coats of arms and figures by Christian Schmidt from Zurich. The Gothic Great Council Hall houses, among other things, the famous collection of coats of arms from 1542 and a collection of weapons (15th-18th centuries).

In the Small Council Hall, which was furnished with gilded paneling in the Rococo style in 1766, the City Council has been meeting since 1542.
