A view facing East from the cloister courtyard. On the far left-side of the image one can see a portion of the abbesses' wing. To the right of this, one can see the Baroque addition; the building directly in front of the west steeple of the church contains the stairway to the nuns' choir and the (assumed) chapel for the deceased, both located in the second story. On the left side of the image is the bell tower.
