    The abbey is managed / run by the Cistercians and is one of the most beautiful pens in Austria. It is worth seeing of its layout and construction - The monks became famous for their "Chant MusikCD" beyond our country. The pen is open year round for guided tours. With the NÖ-Card is free entrance with guidance as often as you want (the normal price is 9, - € uro)

    The pen is impressive. If you want to be quieter, take a walk through the Stations of the Cross after a visit to a monastery.
