In the heart of the village of Liesborn in the municipality of Wadersloh, nestled against the mighty Romanesque tower of the parish church of Ss. Cosmas and Damian, lies the time-honoured Liesborn Abbey. Probably founded around 815 as a convent for ladies, it once developed into one of the most important monasteries in the diocese of Münster.
In 1131, the women's convent was dissolved and transferred to the monks of the Benedictine Order. In the 15th century, under Abbot Heinrich von Kleve, the monastery experienced an artistic and spiritual heyday with the Liesborn School of Painting, which produced works of art of international renown. The "Baroque Blossom" began with Abbot Gregor Waldmann: The impressive representative building dates from this time. In the course of secularisation, the abbey was dissolved in 1803. In the following decades, the art treasures were scattered to the four winds and many parts of the building were demolished: Of the once stately monastery ensemble with enclosure and farmyard as well as numerous fruit, herb and flower gardens, only the church, the three-winged abbot's and representative building built in the Baroque period and the coach house remain today.
Since 1966, the former monastery has been home to a more wonderful place for culture and encounters: the still quite young, lively Museum Abtei Liesborn. With its impressive collection of art and cultural history, it is one of the most important museums in Westphalia. Throughout the year, exhibitions, concerts, lectures, museum festivals, markets, guided tours and educational programmes take place here.
Die Räumlichkeiten des Museums Abtei Liesborn sind nur während der Öffnungszeiten betretbar.
Aufgrund von Bauarbeiten ist das Museum bis Mitte 2023 nicht barrierefrei.
With the support of the Cultural Foundation of the Sparkasse Münsterland Ost, 13 artists from the Kreiskunstverein Beckum-Warendorf e.V. are exhibiting their works in the Four Seasons Park. Embedded in the wonderful park landscape, there will be installations and sculptures to discover, which anyone interested can visit individually or have explained in art tours.

The educational trip of several days in the anniversary year of the Kulturring Liesborn will take the participants between Zabern (French Saverne) and Mulhouse to places of interest in the natural and cultural region. Mr. Delf Slotta from Saarbrücken has planned the itinerary of this trip and will guide the participants through the region of Alsace and the Vosges Mountains.
