Long Description:
The so-called 'Klosterruine Allerheiligen' (Ruin of All Saints' Abbey) nearby to Oppenau, Germany, Baden-Württemberg is the ruin of an old abbey in the Schwarzwald (Black Forrest).

In 1192 a first wooden church was built at this place.

Large fires, in 1470 and 1555, had already destroyed parts of the church. Finally in 1804 a large fire destroyed most of the buildings. In 1816 the ruins were sold for demolition and used as a quarry for stone and scrap for churches.
