History and mission of the abbey (exhibition) and ecclesiastical art past and present (including the Hapsburg mausoleum and Boeckl Chapel in the basilica). Duration: approx. 1 hour
The schnapps distillery also attracts a lot of attention: You can find out about how spirits and liqueurs are produced and taste the results on a 45 minute tour.
Guided tours are available from Monday to Sunday from 9:00am to 5:00pm by prior appointment.
