“Beautiful working Abbey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Unfortunately we have never taken the paid tour, but the grounds are amazing and free if you want to see it. Very beautiful, next time I go, I'd pay for the tour though.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Whilst it may not be comparable to other monasteries in Europe it is the best that Hungary has to offer and is well worth a visit. It is sited spectacularly on a hill, dominating the landscape for miles around.and the star attractions are the basilica and library. BUty a bottle of the local wines produced by the monks - its good.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Beautiful surroundings, great atmosphere. Unfortunately we could not enter the main building, because it was closed, so give a call before you visit.

“Out of the way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

Took a train from Gyor to visit, then took the long walk up to the abbey, no taxis, it was early December though. Parts of the abbey are beautiful and old, but it has been rebuilt over the years. An interesting place to visit if you had a lot of time in the area, otherwise use the time and explore Gyor some more.
