Protecting the environment and preserving our cultural heritage have always been very important for the Benedictine monks. They have always utilized the natural sources but they have never exploited their environment. With the aim of protecting the environment, the Biomass Heating System was constructed in 2009 and it is open to the public. It provides energy for the monastery by burning agricultural and forestry residues instead of fossil fuels.

Partly through the use of renewable energy resources partly through self-produced energy, Pannonhalma Abbey contributes to the reduction of the country's carbon dioxide emissions.

The guided tour in the Biomass Heating System is available in Hungarian language only. For foreign-language groups it is possible to take part in the programme only if they can provide an interpreter. Advanced reservation is needed.


Duration of the programme: approx. 30 min. With a minimum payment of 15 tickets.
