Interesting building with a great deal of history and Baroque art. The church and the Music room have ceiling paintings. In the church are staues of characters from the Hapsbury empire.

I visited the monastery in August 2015. It is true that it is a very impressive monastery, but very dissapointed with the unfriendly stuff and monks. Monasteries are places of spiritual refuge and up lifting. That wasn't the case for me. I was so frustrated...More

One of Tirol’s true architectural gems is the splendid Cistercian Abbey of Stams, founded in 1273 by Count Meinhard II of Gorizia-Tyrol. Set in pristine grounds, the monumental façade is easily recognized by its pair of silver cupolas at the front, which were added as...More
