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!

the description of the abbey says it is 1,000 years old but it looks all ver modern. We walked around with an audio guide which was fine, but at a certain point, I got bored and stopped listening. The setting is very beautiful and the library was really impressive, but overall, am nit sure if we would go again. It... More

This Benedictine Abbey is a UNESCO world Heritage site. If you combine the Abbey and the village it is certainly worth a a whole day visit. The audio-visual guide is self explanatory and we managed to attend the Benedictine service at 1pm. Do not miss this nor the library. Take the free train to the village and explore the small...

There is so much to see and experience at the Monastery. Start with the orientation video and then take a tour of the monastery with one of the official guides, they have so much information and passion for the place. Try to get into the church to hear the Monks in prayer, a truly memorable experience. The Victor restaurant offers... More

The abbey is in a great setting dominating the countryside for km around. It is also in extensive grounds with a winery etc. It also has a very good audio guide system and as I usually don't like these, that's praise! The library is as people say impressive and the church attractive. The whole place is certainly worth a visit... More

What a find! This place is steeped in history and set in stunning countryside. The guides were very interesting and we even see the monks praying, very special. What is even more impressive is the restaurant and the wine made here. First class and more.

Perched high on the hills with wonderful views over the valleys this 1000 yo klastrom certainly has its share of history. The abbey and chapel are as if time has stood still for centuries. The new visitors centre is the old nod to changing times. The highlight is the ancient library full of the most precious books. You can purchase,... More

You can fel the 1000 years history there.Not only for religious people ! Well managed and beautiful environment. Excellent on a sunny day for a nice walk, and visit the abbey easily can spend 3-4 hours. They even have a decent restaurant in walking distance. Parking is easy, great accessability.
