  • Very interesting to know all about the ways they support themselves. Beautiful views from the top of the hill.  more »
  • Holy History, Batman! The Abbey is a very special place. Incredible panoramic views from around the grounds. We watched a wedding take place in the church after doing a personal tour of the grounds. Wine tastings and a separate restaurant assure you won't go thirsty. The frescoes are amazing. Highly recommend you make time for a visit if in the Wachau Valley.
  • The presentation in the museum of the serious history and still-current monastery lifestyle are nicely combined with a visitable and hospitable vibe. Views from the restaurant terrace are fabulous and the church often hosts very interesting musical events. Best reachable via a short lovely train ride to Furth-Göttweig station, from there a 3 min bus ride or 30 min walk.
