St. Florian's Priory and basilica

The town of Sankt Florian is the home of basilica minor in 1999.

St. Florianer Sängerknaben

St. Florian's is also known for its boys' choir (St. Florianer Sängerknaben), founded almost 1,000 years ago in 1071. This choir has been a traditional part of the monastery's worship from its beginning and has contributed significantly to the identity of the town. It has particular responsibility for providing excellence in sacred music for the religious community, but also now undertakes successful international concert tours and television appearances, and has a busy recording schedule.

Selected discography


Sankt Florian has a fire fighting museum (Historisches Feuerwehrzeughaus),[2] a hunting museum (Jagdmuseum Schloss Hohenbrunn) and a museum of farming and local history (Sumerauerhof).
