“Amazing architecture and history.”

Saint Meinrad Archabbey
Reviewed May 29, 2014

It was a very serene setting, due to the time change only 5 miles away, we were an hour too early to hear the monks chant/pray. Beware of time difference.

A great day trip, short spur of the moment trip off the Interstate or retreat weekend. Both beautiful and peaceful. Great picnic areas, gift shop and Abbey Press store. The Archabbey is beautiful! Everyone there is very welcoming!

We went to the Archabbey just to see it from the outside, but by chance, we arrived just in time to take a 45-minute tour. The Archabbey is stunningly beautiful, and we thought that the tour was fascinating. Everyone was so kind and helpful. An architectural gem, as well as a peaceful place to spend some time.

The serene setting takes the stress away - a time to walk and sit and think. The Archabbey mid-day prayer service was a much-needed respite of everyday tension. Since I love the grandeur of the architecture of the old churches, cathedrals and other houses of worship, the Archabbey was magnificantly presented and preserved.

This is one of only 2 Archabbey's in the country. Very neat to happen upon this in a small town. We were able to walk around and take photos. On the weekend there is a guided tour, during the week its self-guided. The brochure gave good directions as to where to walk and what we were looking at. It was amazing to see the architecture and paintings inside. The pipe organ was awesome to see. Peaceful place to take a moment out of your day to reflect. You can also watch during prayer services or participate in mass there at certain times. Worth the drive to see this place. Very unique. Monks still live here as well as run several businesses. FREE
