    Take a tour of Baumburg Monastery in Traunstein, Germany - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. In the southeast of Germany, travelers through the countryside may come upon the Baumburg Monastery. The monastery is marked by two towers, capped by balloon-like domes, tipped with golden crosses. The coat of arms for Traunstein, the district where the monastery is located, features these towers in the bottom right quadrant. In years gone by, the northern part of the district was ruled from the site of the monastery. The roof and domes of the Baumburg Monastery are made of copper and have developed a lovely patina over the years. Baumburg is a beautiful countryside monastery, standing in a clearing bordered by trees and well worth the visit.
