A visit of the monastery (with an entrance ticket) includes the Imperial Staircase, the Imperial Corridor, the abbey museum, the Marble Hall, the balcony, the library and the abbey church; the abbey park with its Baroque pavilion and many other accents (April to October); the Northern Bastion with the Wachau Lab and a panoramic terrace as well as changing special exhibitions.
