Michelfeld Abbey (Kloster Michelfeld in der Oberpfalz) was a Benedictine monastery in Auerbach in der Oberpfalz in Bavaria, Germany.


The monastery, dedicated to Saint Michael and Saint John the Evangelist, was founded in 1119 by Bishop Otto I of Bamberg. It was dissolved in the Reformation, in 1556. Re-opened temporarily in 1661 and permanently in 1684, it was put under the administration of the Electors of Bavaria on 13 March 1802 and finally dissolved in 1803 in the secularisation of Bavaria.


The abbey church became the parish church. Other buildings now accommodate a nursing home.
