Michaelsberg Abbey is a former monastery of the Benedictine Order, belonging to the Subiaco Congregation . The monastery is situated on the Michaelsberg , about 40 metres above the town of Siegburg. For this reason it is also often known as Siegburg Abbey.
The hill called the Michaelsberg, formerly known as the Siegberg, was first inhabited about 800 by the Counts of Auelgau, who built a castle there. In 1064 the Archbishop of Cologne, Anno II of Cologne, founded a monastery there, dedicated to the Archangel Michael, from whom both the mountain and the abbey henceforward took their names. He appointed the monk Erpho as the first abbot. Anno himself died at the abbey in 1075 and was buried there.
