Archbishop Konrad I. founded the former Augustinian Monastery around 1125. During the 17. century the derelict monatery was rebuilt involving medievel parts, so that the idyllic monastery could further exist on the island. But the last bishop had to dissolve the monastery because of the bad economic situation.
Places of interest:
In 1689 the reconstruction of the church has been consecrated, but the interior of the church was not finished until 1762.
Franz Nikolaus Streicher painted the walls and ceiling with breathtaking frescos in the style of the rococo era. This artwork was perfected by Benedikt Zöpf by adding filigree stucco in shades of green.
To enter the monastery you have to go over a wooden bridge and a old gatehouse.
Every three years in the holy week a grave is constituted. It fills the whole sanctuary and it soars upwards to the arch.
