Guests are always overwhelmed upon entering the world's biggest monastic library in Admont Benedictine Abbey for the first time. The beautifully frescoed interior houses 70,000 volumes (200,000 volumes in the whole monastery) and also contains a highly spiritual work of art/sculpture: the Four Last Things. The vast monastic complex, home to a highly interesting and diversified museum landscape, is situated next to the Gesäuse National Park, with untouched nature and many exciting options for outdoor activities. Starting point for many activities with park rangers is the "Weidendom", a living house made of willow trees. Also in close proximity is another park, the Kalkalpen National Park, whose primeval beech forests were registered as natural heritage in 2017.
