About the activity provider
A trip through time with wine One place. A thousand stories. Tourists seeking culture are fascinated by the Verdun Altar (1181), the treasury with the holy crown of Austria and the unique imperial apartments of Emperor Charles VI. The architectural mix of Romanesque and baroque styles which arose through the centuries lend a special atmosphere to this trip through time. Margrave Leopold III, who later became the patron saint of Austria, founded the monastery in 1114. At various times it also served as the residence of the Babenbergs as well as the Habsburgs. Thus, the Stift played a central role in the emergence of Austria as a nation. The tradition of winemaking at Stift Klosterneuburg is also 900 years old, which makes the monastery Austria’s oldest winery still in existence. Diverse tours through the monastery and a wine tasting bring to life the many stories found in this special place.
