... we had gone past it several times, or at least the steps up to it which were numerous. We were pleased when we reached the top to find the abbey as we still were unsure if we were going in the right direction. I was glad we made the climb though as it was very beautiful and peaceful inside. This is where Maria von Trapp was a novice nun and where Captain von Trapp recruited her to teach his children.
