A real scenic place with beautiful landscape and amazing history of the abbey. Not sure what else is there to offer as I was here with a tour.

Don't miss the Library and if you have time attend the mass. It was sublime. The hungarian monks from this abbey were very important on the creation of a great school in São Paulo, Brasil (Colégio Santo Américo)

Only takes about 1 hour to do the tour and the library is amazing. The church has 3 different architecture in it. On top of the hill and when you come to the area there is no mistaken that the abbey is what you see in the distance.

Everything is perfect: the landscape, the buildings, the food. Very well organised and family friendlly activities, great staff. In one word: amazing.If you are on a low budget: no entrance fee in the arboretum and free parking. I'd highly recommend it.

As you get close to Pannonhalma, you realize this abbey is perched atop a hill and it looks more beautiful and magnificent as you get closer. The Abbey itself is enormous, and there are a couple of buildings in it to explore. When we visited the Chapel, there were people singing Gregorian chants. It was a most memorable experience, The...

30mins on a train or bus from Gyor then a short walk up the hill to the abbey (15mins from bus stop or 30mins from train station). The abbey is wonderful but my highlight was the Library. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon in February and had the abbey to ourselves!!

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