We were unable to visit the Abbey as planned, but that was not a problem. The journey is beautiful, the landscapes are wonderful and the time spent on the bus is never more than 3 hours (we only take that time on the way back to Vienna). We went in October so the places weren't full of tourists and it allowed us to walk freely in all places. Our Tour Guide Sofia (celebrated her 1st year as a guide with us) was amazing.

It was amazing trip, we saw beautiful places. Our tour guide Dasha was great, she gave us tons of interesting historic information about Austria and two regions of lower and upper Austria. We learn about three former capitals of Austria. Everything was well organized and efficient. We have enough time to explore and make photos on every stop. Unfortunately, we didn’t see abbey,because of construction works.
