The Mönchskichhof is nowadays designed as a small park. It is a place where two monasteries of the Franciscan mendicant order have been. Their existence can be proven already in the 13th century. The Catholic community has its church St. Anna beside the Mönchskirchhof, a short description can be found at the English written point “churches” on our website. The building, which today houses the library of Stendal and is located next to the Mönchskirchhof, is the former refectory (dining hall) of the Franciscan order. Both buildings (St. Anna and the Refectory) are also part of our brick stone history.
