The Sebastian Kneipp Museum is located in the historical Dominican convent to which Sebastian Kneipp came as father confessor in 1855. In the convent's east wing, there is now a fascinating exhibition documenting the life and work of Sebastian Kneipp. Visitors journey through various eras and themes, starting with Wörishofen before Kneipp's arrival and moving on to how Kneipp lived, his success as a "water doctor" and the five elements of Kneipp therapy and cure.
