Parts of the Angerkloster ("Cloister in the Meadow") date to the 13th century when it was built as a Franciscan Friary. When the Poor Clares arrived in Munich in the 14th century, it was given to them for a monastery by the friars. The Poor Clares were there for 500 years until the wave of secularism under Napoleon swept across Europe and they were expelled. King Ludwig I of Bavaria gave it to Blessed Theresia Gerhardinger in 1843.

Located at Unterer Anger 2 on Sankt-Jakobs-Platz in Munich, it is the Bavarian Motherhouse of the School Sisters of Notre Dame (Arme Schulschwestern v.U.L.Fr.). Until the 1950s it was the main SSND motherhouse, as well. Among those buried in the crypt are generations of Poor Clares, the founding Provincial of the Eastern Province (United States), and the five German Superiors General of the Congregation who followed the Foundress, Blessed Mother Maria Theresia Gerhardinger.
