The Abbey and grounds are definitely worth a visit and if you are on a river cruise and they make a stop here, it is very enjoyable. The church is impressive on its own, but you'll also get a surprise as you have the opportunity...More

We stopped here while on a Danube cruise. The Abbey church was amazing, dating back hundreds of years. Sadly, only 4 elderly monks remain here. They pay the bills through brewing beer. They can't make enough to meet the demand. The interior of the church...More

The Abbey is absolutely stunning, magnificence and I would love to learn more about the history of it. The interior was beautifully maintained and with the Angelic voices the evening was truly soul cleansing.

This was a surprise. We weren't expecting much, but the church was pretty ornate and interesting. The highlight was the shop that sells things that the monks produce. We bought one each of the three available beers and sampled them in the garden. They were...More

As I was wandering through Europe looking at lots of churches in medium to large cities, while a few stood out, most tended to be “more of the same.” When I walked into this small church at the abbey in this village, something about it...More
