interesting facts:
The commemorative coin 2 euro 2013 is another one of the a series promoting federal states of Germany. The most characteristic building of the state Baden-Württemberg was chosen the Maulbronn Monastery. This Cistercian monastery is the best preserved medieval structure of this kind in northern Europe. The first monastery was built here around 1140. The monastery was being expanded over the centuries by successive construction around a courtyard, and everything was protected by a moat. A characteristic feature of the monastery is a decorated washroom combined with a well - so called lavabo shown on the obverse of the coin. In 1993 the Maulbronn Monastery was listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
