I did not visit the Abbey Museum but the Abbey and the wine House. The Abbey is very beautiful and its peculiarity is that it has no transept.

In the dungeons of the abbey there are exhibits on several topics-plans to transport wine on the river, working tools of local craftsmen, accessories companion.

There are no Explanations for the exhibits (together with the ticket give a pink sheet A4, where there is a couple of words about the exhibits)
