*The relics of St Norbert, who founded the Norbertine Order and later became the bishop of Magdeburg, Germany, were transferred from Magdeburg to this monastery in 1627. Since 1873 these relics have rested within a beautifully crafted gilded sarcophagus placed above the main altar of the large chapel located on the right side of the nave of this church.
