Home away from Home on July 1, 2 & 3: Jugendhaus Stift Göttweig

On July 1, 2 and 3 the travelers of Belcanto are going to stay at the Jugendhaus Stift Göttweig. The former boy school dormitory is located right next to the Göttweig abbey which was founded as a monastery of canons regular by Blessed Altmann, Bishop of Passau. The high altar of the church was dedicated in 1072, but the monastery itself not until 1083: the foundation charter, dated 9 September 1083, is still preserved in the abbey archives.
