While this was quite a walk for pensioners both the views and the Abbey itself were worth it. The history connected to the Abbey is amazing

Response from Johannes H | Reviewed this property |
The monastery was rebuild in "historistic style" in about 100 years ago. So the pillars are hardly original, but set there for "decorative" purposes, as usual in this period.
