Overview

Through the times and centuries, St. Florian is a place with a perfect harmony between faith, art and music. Just a few minutes from the city of Linz, you are here in between the nature. Be our guest, enjoy the lovely and peaceful guest-rooms. Use the time for a conversation with canons, go on a hike, or simply relax and let the daily routine behind you. The Canons Regular of St. Augustine's are looking forward to seeing you and wish you a pleasant and blessed stay in St. Florian!

The scale and beauty of the main church at St. Florian Monastery cannot be over emphasized. While not as over the top as Melk Monastery in terms of gold leaf cladding or florid paintings, this cathedral-scale basilica is a very well-executed and harmonious example of...More

This church and seminary occupy a large site containing many stunning and ornate buildings all on a large scale. The main church in particular is incredibly ornate and richly decorated, the seminary monumental, even the small chapel to out Lady is beautifully atmospheric and peaceful.

This is a wonderful place to visit. It feels like a working Abbey should do. It's peaceful and tranquil, but huge and Baroque. It's religion on a massive scale.
