Established in 1293 as a Cistercian monastery by Bernhard of Prambach, Bishop of Passau. Dissolved in 1786 during a period of radical social and political upheaval in Europe.

Refugee monks expelled from their own Abbey in Oelenberg, Alsace, France during World War I re-established the monastery in 1925. In 1930 it was elevated to Abbey under the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O “Ordo Cisterciensis Strictioris Observantiae”).

St.Engelszell as the currently sole Trappist Monastery in the country of Austria is situated in Upper Austria alongside the river Danube which has carved its way deep into the rocky hills of this sparsely populated area.

St.Engelszell is Member of the International Trappist Association (ITA) . In 2009 the ITA awarded its trade- mark protected label “Authentic Trappist Product” to Stift Engelszell’s portfolio of liquors. (St.Engelszell is also famous for its special “Engelszeller Kaese”). We hope that after the numerous controls of the International Trappist Association, the award of their label of authenticity could be granted to the St.Engelszell’s brews.
