The Abbaye de Stams is very easy to reach from Innsbruck, being just a short and inexpensive train ride away. The whole area is very peaceful. If you can plan your times there is the guided tour. If you just arrive there you can still see inside the basilica but only through the gates, but still impressive. There is also... More

It is on one of the routes of St James to Santiago de Compostela The inside of the church was amazing - the statues similar to the bronze ones in Hofkirke in Innsbruck but with a golden colour. Lots of... More

A beautiful building inside and out. We had a guided tour with a very knowledgeable young girl. The Basilica is breathtaking as are other rooms. Well worth a visit.

small fee; church is as beautiful as any you'll ever find. it's ca. 35 km from Innsbruck, near fernpass and can be seen from the highway (as well as probably from space!). if you're anywhere in tyrol, just visit.

I basically enjoyed everything, including the Sport, spa and especially the Food they offered. The Environment is one of the most beautiful one I have ever visited it is in a small and typical bavarian town. It was a pleasure to be there. I am looking Forward to go there again.

We visited Stams and had a look at the monastery, which really was ornate. The basilica was a real lovely sight. So highly decorated and the gardens were well tended. We bought some of the products in the shop that the monks had produced (we still have yet to taste them). Our daughter liked playing on the grass as well.

As non religious and particularly non Catholic persons, the history and beauty of this place was quite breathtaking. It literally is a feast for the eyes and we were lucky enough to be taken on a guided tour, just the two of us, by a young girl who obviously was quite knowledgeable about it and obviously had a great deal...
