“Living with joy” is the motto of Reichersberg Abbey on the Inn river in Upper Austria. And indeed, a visit to the baroque complex is a real pleasure.
Reichersberg Abbey towers majestically over the water of the Inn. Arcades and onion-crowned oriels line the baroque complex, which is grouped around two courtyards. The building is owned by the Augustinian canons, who have lived and worked here for more than 900 years.
Today, Reichersberg Abbey has been carefully renovated and is the venue for cultural events, courses and seminars. Many of the programmes are dedicated to creative and artistic skills such as furniture restoration, soap making, jewellery design or calligraphy.
Textile courses on couture and traditional costume, macramé or felt are also on the programme, as are “What is good for the soul” courses on voice development, writing or incense. The special rooms of the monastery such as the baroque church, the sacristy, the cloister, the library and the summer refectory offer an impressive setting.
Guests stay in one of the 35 rooms with a view of the Inn or over the Inn meadows. The newly designed manor garden is the perfect place to sit outside. The Stiftsbräustüberl offers culinary delights.
