  • One of Austria’s hidden treasures, this monastery dates from 1144. After several centuries of war, raids, invasions and other disasters, it was renovated in the 17th and 18th centuries in the high bar...  more »
  • So close to Vienna and an oasis of relaxation, culture and beautiful scenery. In addition to interesting events were also underground research over the past years, dug and created an impressive exhibition, which was described in detail. (Rooms on request) an interesting experience is to stay in the pen, and with a little luck you can listen the Altenburger sängerknaben. The Stiftsrestaurent is open until the end of October and at the gate you can buy specialities of the region and the PIN. The light Dragonfly pond sparkling wine from the vineyards of the monastery of Altenburg is highly recommended!

  • Benedictine STIFT Altenburg in the forest district is located south of the village on a hill above the Kamp Valley, the Tower of the Church is already visible. The featured Benedictine monastery was founded already in 1144 and originally settled by twelve Styrian monks; only a window into the cloister is preserved from the original Romanesque building. The spacious complex includes the marble tract, library wing, cloister, convent courtyard, kitchen and Brunnenhof. In its current form, the monastery and church was renewed 1730-1733 by Joseph Muggenast; in the Interior of the monastery you will find magnificent stucco decorations, wall paintings, and in particular the famous dome fresco by Paul Troger. In the Church is the beautiful organ. The very impressive library contains 25,000 volumes, a peculiar crypt is 150 incunabula and 358 early printed books in the library. To visit also in the vicinity are the Rosenburg, grilling stone castle, Castle Breiteneich, and the Krahuletz Museum in Eggenburg.

  • Amazing place, energy shine throw every wall. Best part is Kripta and Bibliotheke. Must visit!
  • There are sufficient parking facilities, very nice staff and good food in the restaurant in the middle price segment (lunch with drink around €15). The tour of the monastery makes great pleasure. There are always seats, enough toilets. In between, there are activities for children, such as a memory. The panels of Declaration of are informative but not overloaded. In addition to the PIN and the medieval part of the monastery, there are some gardens that invite you to linger, as well a small maze. Highly recommended as a whole!
