Ossiach Abbey
The Green Guide

Useful information


The Benedictine Ossiach Abbey, founded in the 11C, enjoyed good times before being secularised in 1783, then partly demolished. Today, its restored buildings contain a hotel, and host an internationally known music festival. The Romanesque church was given a Baroque makeover with magnificent soft-tone stuccowork and a vault painted by Josef Ferdinand Fromiller. The baptistry boasts one of the most precious Gothic carved altarpieces in Carinthia.
