The first indication of a cloistral community at Convent Machern dates back to 1084. The actual foundation of the convent was in 1238, when it was included into the Cistercian Order. Henceforth aristocratic daughters could enter a convent close to home. The convent was subordinate to the abbot of Himmerod. At the beginning of the 18th century the convent got its present-day baroque form. The hiking path i.e. Nordic walking trail no. 3 “Dreifaltigkeit” leads past the Convent Machern.
