Fultenbach Abbey

Fultenbach Abbey (Kloster Fultenbach) was a house of the Benedictine Order located at Holzheim in Bavaria in Germany.

Dedicated to Saint Michael, the monastery was founded by Bishop Wikterp or Wigbert, the first documented bishop of Augsburg, who died in 771.

It was dissolved in 1803 in the secularisation of the period, and the buildings were demolished in 1811. The monastery library was transferred to the Lyceum at Dillingen.
