Admission to Klosterneuburg Abbey
Where heaven and earth meet, there is much to experience and to…
The Verdun Altar is recognized as a work that is unique worldwide from the artistic, technical and contentual points of view.
The Sacred Tour leads through the mediaeval cloister to the seven-branched candelabrum of Agnes from the 12th century and on to the mediaeval display room with its outstanding artworks of the Austrian High and Late Gothic period.
From the cloister, the tour leads into St Leopold’s Chapel, the burial place of St Leopold, where the famous Verdun Altar can be seen. This is regarded as a major work of mediaeval enamelling. Completed in 1181 by Nikolaus von Verdun, the altar is recognised as a work that is unique worldwide from the artistic, technical and contentual points of view.
The tour ends in the abbey church, which is particularly impressive owing to its baroque décor, the imperial oratory of Charles VI and the 17th-century “festival organ”, preserved in its original state.
