Teutonic Order in Gruitrode

Teutonics commanderij Gruitrode

The Teutonic Order

was one of the three major knightly or military orders that originated and evolved during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. A lot of knights later became monks but instead of being in monasteries they were found in military fortifications.In the small belgian village of Gruitrode the bailiwick of Biesen had a commandery. It is privately owned and being restored. Each year the middle ages take over for a weekend.
