  • Place of power and it is felt. In the Friday and weekend many pilgrims. On weekdays relatively freely. In the pilgrimage centre, you can remove the housing and to clarify all questions. Food: there is a pilgrimage at the monastery refectory-free, but it's on the air and paid close to the pilgrimage centre.
