The Benedictine church and monastery itself is an important place in the history of the country: the funeral place for Hungary's 4th king, Andrew I, and it's foundation document contains the first written example of the Hungarian language.
The baroque church can be visited without guide or with audioguide, including the crypt, which contains the tomb of King Andrew and a copy of the foundation document.
In the last couple of years a visitor centre has been constructed next to the church, where you can buy souvenirs or view a 10 minute movie about the story and life of the abbey.
The surroundings of the church offer a great view on the Northern Balaton-basin (from the park next to the church), and in clear weather you can catch a glimpse of Badacsony in the west (standing in front of the church door).
