The Bavarian-inspired town of Mt. Angel was incorporated in 1893.
More than 100 years after a Swiss Benedictine monk chose this site as the perfect home for an American abbey, Mt. Angel continues to celebrate its Bavarian roots. Explore the impressive Mount Angel Abbey, chow down on currywurst at Mt. Angel Sausage Company, enjoy heavenly pairings at Benedictine Brewery and join over 300,000 attendees at Mt. Angel’s beloved Oktoberfest, held over a weekend in September every year since 1965.
