Route: Graz - Austrian Open Air Museum Stubing - Admont Abbey - Graz
Duration: 6 h
Our first stop in this tour will be at  valley of the river Mur to Stübing, where we will visit to the Austrian Open-Air museum Stuebing which is one of the 10 major and central open-air museums in Europe. As the largest and only national open-air museum in Austria, it displays the formative historical architectural styles of the various federal provinces. In a trip through time right across Austria, the 98 historical farm buildings tell the exciting stories of construction, living, working and celebrating – in short, the life of the farming population of days gone by. Halfway through your tour, you will taste freshly baked bread – made in the museum’s oven. Our next stop will be at one of the oldest remaining monasteries in Austria, Admont Abbey is a fairy-tale-esque masterpiece of Baroque and Gothic architecture and one of the country’s most precious historical landmarks. Founded in 1074, unsurprisingly the Benedict Abbey of Admont has undergone various reforms throughout its life. The first structure was erected by the Archbishop of Salzburg and occupied by monks from the nearby St Peter’s Abbey. In the early days it served various purposes, including housing a girl’s convent, and a Scriptorium, where scholars wrote various theological works. There we will visit to the world’s largest library. The library is by far the Abbey’s most awe-inspiring room and the primary reason why many visit. At 70 meters long, 14 meters wide and 13 metershigh, it is the largest monastery library in the world. Adorned in intricately painted frescoes portraying the various phases of human understanding; beginning with thought and speech, through the sciences and arts, expertly carved sculptures and golden busks shining, you will find it hard to notice each detail with just one visit. It is not only aesthetically impressive but also houses some of the most important sacred texts in the world, with a collection of around 200,000 volumes. After the visit we will return to Graz.
