Museum Tour

As one of Austria‘s very first museums, founded in 1802, today the monastery museum still accommodates a high-quality collection of paintings, sculptures and handicraft pieces dating from the Middle Ages to modern times.

Masters of the Danube School – most of the complete works of Rueland Frueauf the Younger (around 1500) can be seen in the monastery museum – are displayed vis-à-vis Renaissance bronzes and the Babenberg family tree, which was made during the years 1489 – 1492 to mark the canonisation of Margrave Leopold III.

Klosterneuburg Monastery has commissioned sacred artworks at all periods of history. The Gallery of Modern Art, established in 2013, is carrying on that tradition, thus making it possible to view a newly compiled collection of sacred art of the 20th and 21st centuries every year.
