Schallaburg: “Byzantium & the West. 1000 forgotten years”


From 17 March through 11 November 2018, the Schallaburg will be commemorating a fascinating story about curiosity and prejudice, about greed and fascination, about two worlds that were familiar to each other and yet so strange in many ways.

This story is set in the Mediterranean - a place that has always connected and enriched cultures:
We set sail with pilgrims and crusaders, meet Charlemagne at his imperial coronation and accompany Princess Theodora on her way to Austria.

With exhibits from renowned collections such as the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Treasury of San Marco in Venice and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, “Byzantium & the West” is the most valuable exhibition in the history of the Schallaburg.

Included services:

  • Admission to the Schallaburg
  • WL1 Bus Melk-Schallaburg and back
