This is a wonderous place to simply be. Quiet, reflective, contemplative, full of nature and you are surrounded by evidence of creative spirit everywhere you go. The stained glass windows, inside the archabbey are spectacular! Very intricate and full of color they tell they story of St. Benedict.The huge organ is a sight unto itself. MASSIVE keys span nearly the width of the church. the bells ring and sound almost mystical. There is a snack bar and gift shop. Most areas, that I saw, had w/c access. There is a retreat house and the schedule for 2013 is inside the information area. There are restrooms. St. Meinrad also has the catalog "Abbey Press". The small surrounding town has some interesting small shops and local food. The countryside is beautiful.
