Rests of the monastery can be visited in the "Meerhof" or so called "Haus Meer". You also should take a look at the church tower 13th century which is located in Meerbusch-Büderich. Today it is used as a memorial for war victims. The entrance portal and the hanging cross inside the church have been designed by the artist Joseph Beuys .
