A haven of faith and tranquility, Pannonhalma Abbey represents a historical monument that has lasted as long as Christianity in Hungary. Visit the Benedictine monastery founded in 996 CE, which is now one of the largest abbeys in the world. Learn about life in a monastic community, see the collection of medieval artifacts and artwork, and admire the herb house and botanical garden. The monastery also makes wine, and you'll have a chance to glimpse the production process and taste the final products. Religious and cultural events, such as exhibits and concerts, are regularly held at the abbey. Check online for the schedules. Multilingual audio tours are available, as well as a gift shop and a restaurant.

  • You can get to the Abbey by car through a walking trail in the forest with information boards trilingual (Hungarian/German/English), which we have chosen to take and what we recommend. The place itself is very large and you will immediately notice that suffered a lot of bad renovations due to the massive presence of concrete indoors. The real jewel of this place is the library, an idyllic setting and bright, perfect symmetry and fulfilling for the visitor. Ceilings and tidy arrangement of books on the shelves make this truly magical place. Included in the ticket there are audio guides.

  • All parts are very nice. In my childhood, I was here last time even I liked but now I really enjoyed every part of the felnőtként. The audio-guide to driving very good and inventive. Prayer for the Church, walk to the kerengőben, the more century city walls. Maybe you can also do so. This must see! The gift shop to find the wines are also available, in the Abbey of lavender.
