Not only does Admont Abbey house the largest monastic library in the world but the room is also regarded as the eighth wonder of the world. So, if you visit Admont, under no circumstances should you miss this highlight of Baroque architecture. It’s hard to believe your eyes when you are faced with a staggering 70,000 books, frescoes by Bartolomeo Altomonte and the well-known limewood carvings 'Four Last Things' by sculptor Josef Stammel. Painted in gold and white, the library exudes a unique and majestic air.
Klinkehütte Lodge has a lot to offer: a large hiking trail network in the surrounding area, a parking lot directly at the lodge, comfy beds and hearty meals. All of this makes it a perfect starting point for your family excursion or climbing trip. With the Kaiserau and Mödlingerhütte Lodge nearby there’s almost no excuse for not visiting this lodge, which is heaped in tradition and charm.
They say that the eighth wonder of the world can be found in Admont. We are talking about the monastic library, which will indeed make you fell tiny. Surrounding it is a lively Benedictine monastery where both faith and culture are lived every day. The latter in particular in the form of several museums – the Museum of Fine Arts, Natural History Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art leave nothing to be desired.
Year after year, countless photographers come to the Gesäuse – no surprise really as so much natural beauty simply has to be photographed in all its facets. From the courtship display of the wood grouse to the rutting of the deer, from the starry sky to the life on the alpine pastures – so many things to see, the release button won’t stand still. Luckily there’s the Gesäuse Photo School, where you can learn one or two things from professionals and local photographers.
Kaiserau is, quite simply, the place to be – the high plateau is easy to reach and popular with mountain lovers, walkers, visitors and locals alike. The area offers something for the whole family – kids can watch the horses and cows that make Kaiserau their summer spot, while grown ups can have a coffee at Sportalm restaurant or chat away on one of the comfy benches. There’s always something to do at the high plateau.
