The beautiful abbey is set among beautiful gardens and its current Baroque structure dates back to the early eighteenth century although there has been a monastery at this spot for almost a millennium.
Entrance to the abbey is through an imperial staircase. Inside, you visit the church, its famous library and the balcony which offers great views over the surrounding country.
The magnificent abbey is located on the Danube and a leisurely boat trip through the beautiful Wachau valley is a great way to reach it. Definitely a must see.
