We drove there on a sunny spring morning with our little kids and had a great family day out! The monastery is just so nicely preserved and is one of the most impressive architectural piece from the Middle Ages I've seen so far. Most of...More

We had a guided tour there during which the history of the place itself and the history of winemaking were explained to us in such a fascinating way that next time we might overnight there. Great wine tasting too.

In spite of record heat the restaurant and patios were filled. Still, the service was superb, and the view stunning. Even better, the Kase Knodel and Pfiferling Suppe was absolutely delicious.
