This church and seminary occupy a large site containing many stunning and ornate buildings all on a large scale. The main church in particular is incredibly ornate and richly decorated, the seminary monumental, even the small chapel to out Lady is beautifully atmospheric and peaceful.

A beautiful monastery. It's directly located on the highway from Linz to Vienna. It's the place where Bruckner wrote some of his famous music.

I had seen photos of the library in one of those 10 most beautiful libraries of the world collections that circulate around the internet. For my husband it had the added connection to Anton Brueckner. Since it was close to Linz, we went. It was...More

While on a concert tour, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this wonderful abbey. In fact, in some respects, this is more impressive and with a more personable tour than at Melk. If you have an interest in Romantic period symphonic music, then the very...More
