Took the self guided tour. Pamphlet for walking tour was very descriptive and helpful. Also picked up a map with stops lettered. Would definitely recommend grabbing one. The campus is so very beautiful and peaceful. Loved the open door (literally) policy. The simplicity of the...More

It's not easy to reach St. Meinrad but well worth the effort. The archabbey is only one of seven in the world and from the outside is an architectural marvel. The interior doesn't match the exterior as it was renovated in the late 1990s. No...More

In my two visits to Saint Meinrad Archabbey, I was struck by the tranquility of the place. For those looking for a place that seems almost removed from the world, a place to clear your mind and to re-center, the church and grounds at Saint...More

Was here on retreat with my husband. You feel the holiness of the Hill when you round the corner and see the spires rousing above the town. Saint Meinrad always feels like home. So glad to have another reason to be here.

St. Meinrad is a great place to find a place of heaven while you study or just go on retreat. There are so many facades of the heavenly view as presented by the earthly realities. The place is awya from the madening crowd and gives...More

The art and architecture are outstanding, and the stained glass in the church is as beautiful -- if not more so -- than many of the churches and cathedrals we have visited in Europe.
