Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 149)

Approximate modern location:  South of Zülpich-Enzen, in the vicinity of Obergartzem, Germany.    

Elm-Number [See below]: None.

Other Comments: A monastery was founded here in 1370, but failed due to poverty.  Later, Franciscans and Augustinians had establishments here as well.  In 1704 the foundation was made a part of the Order, dependent on Steinfeld.  Suppressed in 1802, the Church and a few buildings survive.
