“A Must See!”

Augustiner Chorherrenstift St. Florian

Reviewed 18 May 2015 via mobile

While on a concert tour, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this wonderful abbey. In fact, in some respects, this is more impressive and with a more personable tour than at Melk. If you have an interest in Romantic period symphonic music, then the very strong Bruckner connection is quite special. Our guide was absolutely outstanding, too.

It's a nice place to visit if you are in the area. The location it's very well maintained, there is free entrance. Near by you can find a nice restaurant.

This is a beautiful monastery complex with a beautiful church where Anton Bruckner was organist and where he is buried. The guided tour was excellent, the library is beautiful and there is a gorgeous marble salon. The rooms for the members of the Imperial court are worth seeing and Anton Bruckner's room is very touching. We also saw Bruckner's tomb in the crypt which is directly under the organ. The church has the most wonderful wooden pews with gorgeous cherubs all over them. The whole complex is very tranquil and we found it a pleasant change from Melk which is more commercialised.
The village has a wonderful cafe.

Well worth the bus trip from Lintz. We caught a local bus from the bus depot at the main station, arriving at St Florian village where there was no evidence of what eye were about to experience. We wandered up the hill to find a most spectacular Baroque church. Absolutely mind blowing. We have visited many churches through Europe and this would have to be one of the best. A tiny village with a serious treat. There is accommodation available in the abbey. This looked very clean and newly renovated. We did not do a tour and just wandered at our own pace. Check out the cemetery next door with the little cathedral. Some very interesting art work at the entrance! I hope you enjoy this trip as much as we did.

The church and the the outside are truly impressive. To bad that the opening hours for guided tours are very limited, and that the Baedecker guide book gives wrong hours.
