Klosterneuburg Abbey

One place. One thousand stories.

Nestled between the blue Danube and lovingly tended vineyards, just a few stops from Vienna, lies the picturesque Klosterneuburg, a significant place in the history of Austria's origins.

More than 900 years ago, in 1114, Margrave Leopold III of the House of Babenberg, the patron saint of Austria, founded this extraordinary place. Whether you’re on your own or part of a group, there are a great many exciting tales from history for you to discover.
There’s the medieval Verdun Altar (1181), which tells biblical stories through breath-taking imagery, as well as the Austrian Archducal Hat (1616), which was last used in 1989 and can be marvelled at in the Treasure Chamber.

After visiting the current exhibition (May to November), go on a voyage of discovery in the monastery's treasury. The absolute highlight here is the holy crown of the country: the Austrian archduke's hat.
