Until the Reformation in 1552, the charnel house (“Beinhaus”, also known as Karner St. Michael) served to store the bones of the monks. When their graves were reoccupied, they found their final resting place there. The slender, octagonal brick building is richly decorated with glazed stones. The charnel house was built around 1270 and is unique in northern Germany.
