This huge monastery has had a very changeful history since its foundation in 1150! The most impressing piece is the stunning Baroque Church (one of the most beautiful in Europe) as well as the remaining of the monastery (like the monk's cells), later transformed into a large farming operation. Many things are still visible, and the herb garden is just amazing (at least in Summer)!
The entire monastery has been transformed into a hotel/seminar center with restaurant at a very high level, combining modern, fancy design with referrals to the monastery life. If you like exceptional settings, you should try this out.
Rooms are very nice and reasonably big, and the restaurant serves good local food, using products from the farm and the region. Only flaw is the quality of the service in the restaurant - they are slow, tend to forget you, or get irritated because a guest decides to take the breakfast in the garden rather than in the breakfast room. I hope that the manager reads these lines: if he manages to gear up his team, this place would be flawless.
