“Bigger and not so crowded than Melk”

Augustiner Chorherrenstift St. Florian

Attraction details
Reviewed 12 February 2016

A beautiful monastery. It's directly located on the highway from Linz to Vienna. It's the place where Bruckner wrote some of his famous music.

I had seen photos of the library in one of those 10 most beautiful libraries of the world collections that circulate around the internet. For my husband it had the added connection to Anton Brueckner.
Since it was close to Linz, we went. It was easy to catch a bus from the Linz central bus station next to the central railway station.
Once at the Monastery, we had lunch (reviewed elsewhere), took the tour and then stayed for the organ recital in the church at 2:30. Only about 6 other people were at the recital, we had the whole gorgeous baroque church to ourselves. I'm surprised that St. Florian does not have more reviews and photos. There are many more photos than I could add here at my husband's blog:

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.
