Admont Benedictine Monastery

I was struck by the fairy-tale like beauty and history in the Admont Benedictine Monastery and their collection of artwork and books is quite impressive.  It boasts the world’s largest monastery library and vibrant frescos in the typical Baroque style.  It’s hard to believe this was built almost a thousand years ago!
