  • ... is more accessible! By remote already recognizable as a gigantic building incredible over the Summit of the Bakonygebirges, this almost unearthly impression with the approach of the visitor loses to the Benedictine monastery. Twice we took a stop to inspect this attractive - even from the inside, and twice we have failed. We each landed on the great portal and where the strict certified Health Organization us guardian, that visit - even just for the cloister - only in a group and with management is possible and this only in very narrow time Windows.
