About us

The 'most tower-rich' monastery in Austria surprises with a High Baroque abbey church that is among the most magnificent in this country. 850 angels romp about the church. The 'Vorau War in Heaven' in the sacristy is impressive. The world-famous library convinces with its magnificent furnishings.

VORAU ABBEY - The only Augustinian canon monastery in Styria - founded in 1163

The Austinian canon monastery in Vorau in the delightful landscape of the Joglland was founded in 1163 in order to create a centre of prayer, education and culture.

The High Baroque abbey church, the sacristy with "Hackhofer" frescoes and the library are particularly important. You can conveniently park right in front of the abbey and from there visit the abbey, the open-air museum (3 minutes' walk), the canon walk (about 800 m long) and the large inner courtyards.
