Show sight on map

The LWL-Museum in der Kaiserpfalz is located in Paderborn in the immediate vicinity of the cathedral. It presents finds from Carolingian, Ottonian and Saxon times. It is located on the site where, during construction work in 1964, the foundation walls of the Palatinate Paderborn from the 8th century as well as a later complex from the time of Henry II were found. They are part of today's building fabric and can still be traced very well in the masonry of the museum. In 1964, the Imperial Palace of Charlemagne was also found right next to today's museum. The outline of this complex can only be seen today through the reconstructed foundation walls. The Landesmuseum is run by the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe. The building belongs to the Metropolitan Chapter and is rented free of charge to the museum's sponsor.

The Abdinghof monastery Sankt Peter and Paul is a former abbey of the Benedictine in Paderborn, consisting of its foundation by the Bishop Meinwerk von Paderborn, born in the Dutch Renkum in 1015 until his secularization on March 25, 1803. However, new archaeological findings are close to the conclusion that the Abdinghof monastery was only built in the late 11th century. If this applies, Bishop Meinwerk cannot have laid the foundation stone of the monastery.
