A monastery’s library in Austria has become one of the most photographed places in the world.

Admont Abbey library is located in a small Austrian town. It features Baroque interiors that have been known to take people’s breath away. The interior has also been described as being so beautiful, it almost seems as if it’s been Photoshopped.

The library gained even more interest when Oprah Winfrey’s book club recommended it to its two million members in 2021.

“Go for Baroque in Austria and visit the Admont Abbey library.”

That led to the library becoming an international crowd favourite. It soon featured on various influencers’ bucket lists and has been visited by thousands of people.

News24 reports that once far from the beaten track, the near 950-year-old Benedictine abbey now struggles on some days in summer to accommodate all the influencers and selfie hunters who want to immortalise themselves amid its frescos and chequerboard marble floors reminiscent of the library in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
