    For many years, I wanted to go to the Chair God in order to be able to see with my own eyes the magnificent organ in the Abbey Church. And I was not disappointed, the organ is magnificent but more the Abbey is splendid, inspired by peace and quiet. Unfortunately the cloister is now held during the work, but still this place is simply beautiful, a contemplative beautiful and timeless... Feel free to make a detour, it actually worth in...

    Imposing and magnificent site despite the ongoing renovation. I'll be back in 2019 once all completed renovations.
