Pannonhalma Abbey - Review
Ideal for a day trip, this UNESCO world heritage site is located 20 kilometres away from Gyor and dates back to thousand years. Originally a fortress, this structure is the witness to the glorious history of Hungary and has a prominent place where important events took place. National movements, peace treaties, Turkish invasion, great fires and number of restorations make it an illustrated picture book of European art and history.
Displaying a huge era from Romanesque to classicism, this fortress of Hungarian Benedictines still has few reminisces of the old church in the crypt. Flaunting a priceless catalogue of library dating back to 1090, there are over 250,000 volumes in the library including the charter of the cloister from Stephen I dated 1001. Also, the earliest record of written Hungarian language is a matter of pride!
Worth a visit on the trip to Hungary!

Pannonhalma Abbey, Gyor Reviews
Location and view is very nice, the library is beautiful but it is expensive considering that you cannot visit too many thing inside the building complex. The arboretum is a good place for a nice walk and to discover the herbs. There is a separate trip for brewery for a separate price.
The best historical site in the city. Used a tour app to walk us through the history at our own pace and it was the way to go. The library was the highlight. Go early to reduce wait times for the church.
Don’t pass by and make a 3 hours deviation. It’s worth seeing. At least once. With a help of of a precise audio guide.
A nice visit to one of the eight UNESCO world heritage sites in Hungary. Take the bus from peron 11 Győr autobusz állomás and get off at Pannonhalma (get the bus ticket from the bus driver for 465HUF) takarékszövetkezet, then walk along Hunyadi St. You will reach the visitor center first, then choose one of the two paths: one leads you along the asphalt road, the other takes you into the woods around the archabbey. The admission includes an audit guide for you to enjoy the place at your own pace. The chapel and the library are open to the public. The museum shop worth a visit as well --- it is on the way out and you can't miss it
Combined a lot of history and Hungarian culture. Get at least an audio guided tour to experience the best though they also have optional actual guided tours. Beautiful hilltop views and stunning Gothic Abbey, Library and the crypt.
