KLOSTERNEUBURG MONASTERY

RESIDENCE OF THE BABENBERGS AND HABSBURGS

The origins of Klosterneuburg Monastery go back to Margrave Leopold III, who in 1113 relocated his residence to Klosterneuburg and in the following year fulfilled a vow by founding the monastery (as recounted in the Legend of the Veil).

In 1133 the Babenberg Prince summoned the Canons Regular of St. Augustine to Klosterneuburg, where they were to spend centuries developing the monastery into a centre of religious life, culture and scholarship. To this day the Augustinian Canons work in this spirit and according to the monastic Rule of Saint Augustine.

Duration: 3–5 hours. Admission fees not included.
