  • A place of quiet in the woods outside of Vienna. Highly recommend doing the tour with I've is the monks. Bus 365 from Vienna hbf gets you there and back. Easy.
  • Went on a detour from Vienna on December, 20th. Initially we were worried about group visits only and at fixed times; on top of that ended up a few minutes late. Regardless, we were offered a tour without a hitch and it was literally just for four of us. Some might argue there's not that much to see but I say a hour-long tour and a little stroll around were ABSOLUTELY worth it. It is a beautiful place (likely even more so in summer), with rich history and peaceful yet very moving appearance. Extra info which may be useful for tourists: Restaurant on the site is also good so you may plan around having a meal there and I believe you may even stay there as a guest - if you have a car and had your share of Vienna sightseeing that's an option. We took an Uber from/to hotel in Vienna, it's a half an hour ride.
