It was really interesting learning about the history of the abbey. Although an English tour would have been preferred , the notes given were sufficient. The Cloisters and Rococo Chapel were highlights. Great when paired with the gardens next door

The first sun came out as we visited this place. The abbey itself is more about the stories behind it than the actual building itself, and only parts of it can be visited. The real highlight are the gardens, which can be visited separately (combo-ticket...More
