This was a bust for us. The museum tour is only offered in German, so that was off the table. That left just wandering around. The church was elaborate and quite beautiful.

We just visited the church part. It was beautiful, but not more that many others that we visited recently. The library we heard is amazing and we will visit it next time. Parking is for free. Photo permission costs extra: In addition to the entrance...More

The Abbey is really cool, but the Library will blow you away. Make sure you ask for the English tour guide. Its a hand held device that gives you a tour in english. You have to ask for it they did not offfer.

The inside will have you in awe of the ornate details and magnificent artwork that makes you stare in amazement. There was a wedding at the time of my visit.

Simply amazing!! America was still undiscovered and these guys had a Library!!! Now one can understand why Europe was the birth of civilization! Ask for your english guided tour at the entrance. Worth it! And while at it visit the church right next to it!!

We were there on a wedding recently. It is really lovely. I can imagine it is more beautiful, when it´s sunny and rainless, but even if not, it was worth visiting. The venue is also perfect for open-air-concerts and gatherings. The baroque library is breathtaking....More
