Photographer's Note

Interlaken's former Augustinian monastery dates to the 12th century. The castle church in Interlaken called Schlosskirche has an interesting history. It was actually a monastery built in 1133 .
During the 13th century the Monastery's influence spread throughout the neighboring area and into the Aare and Gürbe valleys. They eventually had authority over two dozen churches along with a number of villages and farms and became the largest religious landholder in the region.
A document from 1310, indicates that there were 30 priests, 20 lay brothers and 350 women at the Monastery.
During the 14th century the canons and nuns stopped following most of the monastic rules.
During the Protestant Reformation, the Monastery was secularized in 1528.
