Austria Guides

Dear Austria Guides, welcome to Klosterneuburg Monastery!

Founded 900 years ago, the monastery is, at one and the same time, a place of lived faith, a place where unique cultural treasures are preserved, and a producer of outstanding wines. The fruitful interplay of the spiritual and the secular lends Klosterneuburg Monastery its unique charm, which we want to share with visitors from all over the world.

We are very committed to making Klosterneuburg Monastery transparent and accessible for visitors of many different backgrounds and ages, arousing their curiosity to learn more about Austrian art, culture and history.

By means of attractive themed tours, Klosterneuburg Monastery presents itself in all its variations: as an active monastery of the Augustinian Canons, as an imperial residence, as Austria’s oldest winery, and as a preserver and collector of religious and modern art.

Designed especially for Austria Guides, the Monastery & Art Tour offers you the opportunity to select highlights from this variety and present them in an enjoyable atmosphere, adapted to the individual requests, wishes and interests of your guests.

As we value your work very highly and are interested in good cooperation with you, we have drawn up texts with in-depth information on the themed tours, complemented by regularly updated details regarding the practical procedure for a visit.

We hope that the information for guiding the tours will help and encourage you to present the monastery and its art treasures to your guests. Enjoy your visit!

Abbot Primate Provost Bernhard Backovsky Can. Reg.

Gottfried Fragner, Managing Director for Culture, Tourism and Marketing
