I Did A Photoshoot In A Real-Life Disney Library – Admont Abbey

The world gasped in 1991 when the Beast first showed Belle his library in the classic Disney princess film. The Von Wong team pretty much had the same reaction walking through the alabaster doors of Admont Abbey – the oldest monastic library in the world very and reminiscent of Belle’s library.

With pristine marble flooring, vibrant ceiling murals and ornate book shelves, it is the home to over 70,000 books and manuscripts on display.

It looks like photoshop… but it’s not

We were allowed unrestricted access to the library

Admont Abbey is the largest monastic library in the world

Can you spot the real life monk posing in our shot for us?

We were only allowed to shoot after hours, and had to light the library with the gear

A small group of friends having an amazing adventure
