The Monastery is the oldest social institution in Denmark. It was established in 1431 by Maren Hemmings 1451. Since the Reformation the monastery was a hospital, and the city's "Latin School" was housed here for nearly 300 years. Historical interior with frescoes dated about 1500.

Now the Monastery is a residence for approx. 25 senior citizens.
