The cellar spaces were restored and revitalized for the Lower Austrian Provincial Exhibition in 2000 and have been used for cultural events and exhibitions ever since.

There are two segments:

Small Baroque Cellar

The Small Baroque Cellar, situated under the rooms of the abbot and the prior, was built by Jakob Prandtauer in 1713/1714.

Great Baroque Cellar

“With the greatest of efforts this cellar was quarried out of the rock under Abbot Valentin Embalner, finished in 1652, and filled with wine.”
