All reviews audio guide gift shop day trip worth a visit wine tasting hungarian history free parking nice restaurant impressive library sits atop a hill parking lot great view lavender fields walking distance ancient books perched high botanical gardens
Although it was February meaning that not every Archabbey facility was open to visitors, i think it was worth it. Audio guide is a great help, information provided is interesting. The abbey, the library and the church should be a beaten track site.
We spent a few hours up here, with very few other tourists. Lovely place, lots of time to see everything, including a couple of close-by outlying chapels and such. A colorful bonus: a bicycle race ended in the parking lot, which, like the Archabbey itself,...More

The Monastry sits atop a hill. Can be accessed buy car or walking paths. Although it is over restored (bad hungarian habit) still was a pleasant experience overall. The library is stunning with its interior and 400 000 books. The view is gorgeous and several...More
Difficult to score. As others have commentated, the buildings are rather over-restored and, despite the history, a little dull. However, it's surrounded by very attractive countryside and well worth a half day out from Gyor or a detour if you're in the area. There's a...More
