Settled by Benedictine monks from Peterhausen in 1097, Mehrerau was suppressed in 1806. Some of its manuscripts are preserved in the Voralberger Landesarchiv. In 1854 the Cistercian monastic community which had been expelled from Wettingen restored the monastic buildings, which are now the seat of the Cistercian abbey of Wettingen-Mehrerau. The monastery library contains some 100 manuscripts, 18 were filmed for HMML
Founded in 975 at Georgenburg, this Benedictine monastery was destroyed by fire in 1705 and transferred to Fiecht in the following year.
