The Wöltingerode monastery was founded as a Benedictine monastery in 1174, but was converted into a monastery for Cistercian nuns a short time later. They laid the foundation stone for the monastery walls that are still preserved today. After the monastery flourished from the 13th to 15th centuries, the Reformation and the Thirty Years’ War brought turbulent times. After a devastating fire in 1676, the monastery was rebuilt in the style that has been preserved to this day.

In the last century, the Wöltingerode monastery estate was, among other things, home to a rural women’s school run by the Reifenstein Association and the seat of the Welfen Academy.
