Touring the abby was one of highlitghs of my my visit to Hungary. The herb garden and suvenier shop along with a very nice restaurant with a good wine selection. It is certainly a place to visit for the whole family.

Hi Tunde M, thanks for your reply. I read that the train stop at the abbey is much further than the bus stop. I will check out the bus station in gyor then. Thank you.
