Garsten Abbey


Garsten, Austria (AT)
Garsten Abbey (Stift Garsten) was a Benedictine monastery in Garsten near Steyr in Upper Austria. It is now a prison.

Since 1851 the former monastery buildings have accommodated a prison, Justizanstalt Garsten. This is one of the few prisons in Austria where life sentences are carried out. Austrian incest-rapist Josef Fritzl is serving his sentence there.
