Description

Dive into more than 900 years of history at Klosterneuburg Monastery. See how it has developed into a religious, scientific, cultural, and economic center in Vienna, visit the winery founded in the 13th century, and get a free audio tour. And don't miss the Verdun Altar - one of the most significant works of medieval art!

Klosterneuburg Monastery was founded over 900 years ago by the Babenberg Margrave Leopold III – who later became the patron saint of Austria. It was the residence of the Babenbergs and Habsburgs and holds the crown of the Archduchy of Austria in its Treasure Chamber.

The Verdun Altar is one of the most important artworks of the Middle Ages. Consisting of 45 gilded copper plates, it's arranged in three horizontal rows in St Leopold's Chapel, depicting the epochs of salvation. Don't miss it while you're here!

But you'll also want to soak up the atmosphere of Klosterneuburg Monastery. As well as a religious, scientific and economic center, this spot has become a cultural hub for the Viennese. Feel 900 years of history seeping through the walls as you explore!

Insider tip

Legend has it that in 1114, Margrave Leopold III founded the Klosterneuburg Monastery in the same place he found his wife's veil after it was blown from her face on their wedding day. How's that for romantic?
