With pristine marble flooring, vibrant ceiling murals and ornate book shelves, it is the home to over 70,000 books and manuscripts on display, it is majestic in scale, detail and evocative atmosphere.

Admont Abbey, located on the Enns River in the town of Admont in Austria, is the largest monastic library in the world. Admont is Benedictine and known for its Baroque architecture, art and manuscripts.
