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... More

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... More

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.

Check their tour timetable on the web before you go, as they are well worth doing. And if you like organ music, don't miss the recital in the church whenever it is... More

The Augustiner Chorherrenstift at St. Florian is not as heavily visited as the more well-known Stift at Melk, but it is definitely worth a visit. There is an over-all lightness to the church. The main church is beautifully proportioned with exceptional plaster work on the ceilings, a stunning organ, and remarkable carved choir stalls. The choir stalls include a tremendous... More

I had the chance to visit St. Florian in the European summer of 2008, and I can't say enough great things about this place. It is one big complex with a good mix of things to see, due to its rich cultural past. As you enter the grounds, you will notice perfectly manicured gardens. Being an abbey, there is of... More
