AUGUSTINER CHORHERRENSTIFT ST. FLORIAN

The monastery of St. Florian is an Austrian Baroque jewel and was documented for the first time in 819; it as been inhabited by Augustine canons since 1071.
The present-day Baroque building is one of the few completed Baroque monasteries, an achievment of the Italian architect Carlo Antonio Carlone and the Austrian Jakob Prandtauer. A guided tour through the library,which contains 140,000 volumes, the imperial Marble Hall and the emperorīs rooms, a suite of 13 magnificent chambers appointed with original Baroque furniture, is highly recommended.

However, not only the architectural beauty is unique to the monastery, its musical tradition has also made it famous far beyond Austriaīs borders. The collegiate church and its magnificent organ greatly influenced the life and work of the composer Anton Bruckner.
