Approximate modern location: South of Zülpich-Enzen, in the vicinity of Obergartzem, Germany.
Elm-Number [See below]: None.
Other Comments: A monastery was founded here in 1370, but failed due to poverty. Later, Franciscans and Augustinians had establishments here as well. In 1704 the foundation was made a part of the Order, dependent on Steinfeld. Suppressed in 1802, the Church and a few buildings survive.
