St. Florian Monastery

St. Florian Monastery

Augustinian choristers’ St. Florian cloister is a place where people come together and worship, the cultural centre of the region and a gem of the Austrian Baroque. Particularly noteworthy is its library with more than 150,000 volumes, the imperial marble hall, the altar of St. Sebastian built by Albrecht Altdorfer, the crypt with the sarcophagus of Anton Bruckner and the ‘Bruckner organ’ in the monastery’s basilica. The monastery is a well-known place of pilgrimage far beyond Austria’s borders. Saint Florian is said to have been buried at this site, and famous composer Anton Bruckner was also laid to rest here.
