A haven of faith and tranquility, Pannonhalma Archabbey 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. Not all of the abbey is wheelchair-accessible, but special arrangements can be made for visitors with walking difficulties.

  • This Archabbey was founded over a thousand years ago, part of the current building are over 800 years old. Even if you are not religious this is an interesting place to visit to learn a lot about...

  • I went during the week and it was pretty much empty. Very peaceful. Give yourself plenty of time to walk the surrounding grounds and through the nice woods. Beautiful architecture and spectacular library. They offer audio tours in many languages which was interesting to listen to.
  • great place for a family short journey. Parking is near the church, loacated at visitor center. Go up with the stairway, and walk around the wall, you can find the entrance. It makes us shocked that they have an audio guide in Chinese, which is quite good for us to better understand the history.
