Wilten abbey was entrusted to the Premonstratensians in 1128. However, the orange-coloured roughcast and curved façade give it a very 17C Baroque look. Aymon and Thyrsus, the two wooden giants painted at the entrance, are a reminder of the legendary origins of the building. Inside, a splendid grille protects the oldest statue (c1500), of Aymon. Paintings and stucco decorate the nave, whose black altarpieces are gold trimmed. The high altar is adorned with a handsome "Solomon's Throne".
