Overview

A half-hour drive from Graz will bring you to the Benedictine Seckau Monastery, located amongst overwhelmingly beautiful scenery. Driving up from Aichfeld, you will see the mighty twin towers of the abbey, founded in 1142. Originally Romanesque in style, it is a renaissance building today. Pride of the church is an altar room with a crucifixion scene dating back to the 12th and 13th Century. The modern Böckl Chapel is also remarkable. Once you are tired from looking around the monastery, pop into the Hofwirt, an excellent restaurant serving hearty traditional dishes.
