Monastery of Admont

Largest monastic library in the world as well as a museum rich in contrasts under one roof!

Admont Abbey (Stift Admont) is a foundation of the Benedictines on the River Enns in the town of Admont and is the oldest remaining monastery in Styria. It contains the largest monastic library in the world and a long-established scientific collection with different exhibitions each year. Furthermore it is known for its Baroque architecture and collections of art and manuscripts. The library hall, built in 1776 is 70 metres long, 14 metres wide and 13 metres high, and contains about 70,000 volumes of the monastery's entire holdings of about 200,000 volumes.

The abbey's location is on the border of the mountainous Gesäuse National Park (the name Admont derives from the Latin expression "ad montes," "at the mountains"), and is of unusual scenic beauty.

Opening hours: April – October, daily from 9 a.m. til 5 p.m., off- season visits on request
