Peaceful and amazing. The library is interesting and you can glimpse into the life of the abbey if you are lucky.

If you come from Vienna or from Budapest the best way is the highway M1. You can see already from Győr the silouette of the main building of the abbey. Approaching to Pannonhalma ( on road Nr82) you can see more and more. To the picturesque view belongs also the Millenium Monument , and the Boldogasszony Chapel on the right.... More

Being a UNESCO site I had lots of expectations, and although it is a wonderful abbey, I have seen many others in central Europe that are clearly superior. The Basilica is beautiful but currently under construction. The library, the tower and porta speciosa are the highlights in my opinion. You have access to audio guides.

Wonderfully situated with a superb view, the Abbey is a very disappointing attraction. Overpriced for what you get at 2,200 fts per person with no concessions. The abbey church itself is being cleaned and renovated and is entirely under wraps so you can see almost nothing of it (about which you are not informed at the time of buying tickets).... More

Probably the most interesting monastery in Hungary, founded in 996, UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Romanesque Basilica of St Martin was heavily restored in the 19th C. The 19th C library is the highlight of the tour.

This place is renovated and absolutely clean and organized. The library is impressive, I couldn't get breath when I saw. Don't forget to buy some gift in the shops from lavender, for example air freshener, or oil. The wines from this area also excellent choices!
