The Augustinian Canons Abbey of Neustift was founded in 1142 by the Bishop Hartmann of Brixen. Right from the beginning it was a much-frequented hospice and resting place for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land or Rome. You can still see today the famous and rich abbey library, the Gothic cloister and the popular abbey cellar.
