Benedictine Abbey of Admont

Admont in Styria

A jewel of Baroque meets contemporary art. 70,000 restored books, ceiling frescoes and sculptures in the magnificent library hall face works by Erwin Wurm, Rudi Molacek and Lois Renner.
It’s an exciting concept between Benedictine tradition and cultural relevance which results from the confrontation of the Admont Benedictine monks with the art and culture of our time. Admont Monastery not only has the world’s largest monastic library, but since 1997 it has increasingly concentrated on historic grown patronage of the church.


With the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Admont monastery created a modern framework for works by over 100 artists, compiled thematically on changing special exhibitions. In addition to the ongoing acquisition activity, the Artists-in-Residence programme invites artists from younger and middle generations into the monastery and to create site-specific works of art. Objects that result from the creativity of the artists in residence are labelled "Made for Admont" in the monastery collection. For this exemplary combination of high-level modern art with ancient heritage, the Admont monastery was awarded the “2005 Austrian Museum Prize".
