Just a few years after relocating their residence to Klosterneuburg, Margrave Leopold III and his wife, Agnes, founded the monastery near their castle as a religious, social and cultural center in 1114. They handed the monastery over to the Canons Regular of St. Augustine in 1133.
We were enroute from Salzburg to Vienna and stopped off at Klosterneuburg for a couple hours to visit the monastery & town. The Klosterneuburg Monastery is a twelfth-century Augustinian monastery of the Roman Catholic Church located in a hill overlooking the Danube river and town. The Monastery contains the Verduner Altar, made in 1181 by Nicholas of Verdun. Its three parts comprise 45 gilded copper plates modeled on Byzantine paragons. The complex also contains a museum with a collection of Gothic and Baroque sculpture and a gallery of paintings. The paintings found in the abbey church have been well preserved and are impressive. It has been remodeled in the Baroque style in the seventeenth century and was my favourite part of the Monastery complex. If you are travelling through the area, Stift Klosterneuburg is a scenic and historical spot to spend a couple of hours. It has a quaint, picturesque setting with monastery overlooking the town.

The historic centre of Vienna is rich in beautiful architecture, including Baroque Castles and Gardens, as well as the late-19th-century Ringstrasse lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks.
You will get a good feel for the city in this location. Plenty of shopping and historic buildings as well as places to eat. No visit to Vienna is complete without coming here.

Das Florian-Berndl-Bad in der Gemeinde Bisamberg (am Stadtrand von Korneuburg) bietet gerade jetzt in der Sommerzeit sehr gute Angebote und tolle Freizeitangebote was Baden/Schwimmen/Sonnen-Baden/Rutschen etc. betrifft.
Das große Hallenbad (Temperatur sehr gut) bietet viel Platz zum Schwimmen, auch für spezielle Trainings, daneben gibt es ein kleineres Kinderbecken (sehr warm), dass für die Kleinen hervorragend geeignet ist und wo auch immer wieder Baby-/Kinderschwimmkurse angeboten werden.
Die Liegestühle im Hallenbad sind sehr modern und praktisch und auf einige Ebenen verteilt, alles wirkt sehr hell und modern. Der großzügige Garderobenbereich ist sehr modern gestaltet, mit hellen grünen Kästchen. Die Garderobekästchen sind mit einer elektronischen Sperre versehen, die sehr einfach, bequem und einwandfrei zu bedienen ist.
Ein riesiges Außenbecken deckt das Schwimmangebot sehr gut ab. Ein kleineres Kinderbecken mit Kinderrutsche und ein größeres Becken mit der langen Rutsche runden das Angebot hervorragend ab. Eine grüne Liegewiese und ein großer mit Sonnensegel überdachter Sandspielplatz sind ebenfalls vorhanden. Während der Ferienzeit gibt es für die jüngsten Besucher viele verschiedene interessante Angebote wie riesige Bälle und Rollen (in die man hineineinsteigen kann und die mit Luft aufgeblasen werden) – und man dann in einem separaten Bereich im Becken „auf dem Wasser“ gehen und das akrobatische Können zeigen kann
In den Sommermonaten gibt es vergünstige Eintrittskarten. Auch die kulinarische Versorgung mit einem guten Restaurant im 1. Stock ist ebenfalls gegeben, es werden gute und einfache Speisen angeboten, die preislich günstig sind. Der Erholungs- und Schwimmfaktor ist hierauf Grund der Vielzahl der Angebote und des riesigen Areals sehr gut!

Regulars to the Essl on each visit to Vienna, it has a free bus from behind the StaatsOper every two hours or by D tram or A4 U-bahn to Heiligenstadt and a bus to Klosterneuberg, LeopoldBr.
Currently Exhibitions Alex Katz, Xenia Hauser and New York, New York. As usual, very quiet so we could walk around and enjoy the art.
Ten minutes walk from Stift Klosterneuberg, a high gothic abbey with roman/medieval crypt.

Fabulous gallery that’s well worth the short train ride from the centre of Vienna.
From Cubism to Contemporary, the Langenzersdorf Museum offers a superb collection of Austrian’s best twentieth-century sculptors including Siegfried Charoux (who was elected as a member of the Royal Academy of Arts, London) and Anton Hanak - both artists were celebrated for their figurative sculptures – there are also Alois Heidel’s brightly coloured dramatic abstracts.
These works are exhibited in a lovely airy and impressive modern gallery and extensive sculpture garden where special Exhibitions and Concerts are also scheduled.

The Cultural World Heritage Site of Schönbrunn Palace is Austria's most frequently visited tourist attraction. In the palace the residential and state rooms with their original furnishings and decorations convey an authentic impression of the imperial lifestyle. The park and Gardens surrounding the palace make Schönbrunn in a unique synthesis of Baroque art as well as providing a convenient and highly popular recreational area for Vienna's population.
Maybe I’ve reached an age when I should stay at home but frankly the crowds and their behaviour at this ridiculously opulent palace is akin to the worst type of anti-social behaviour one sees today in our increasingly less civilised tourism trade.
Having said that given that the worst offenders were Russian and Chinese I’m not sure they know how to behave in any event in these situations.
So having been pushed, shoved, whacked with backpacks and cut off a dozen times in 45 minutes we left.
Is it worth seeing.....not really. Not unless you like being trashed by a mob of rude tourists many of whom wouldn’t know how to act with any degree of decorum or politeness to save themselves.

In the middle of nowhere you will be surprised to find a very special museum. The artists live nearby and decorated their home with vivid colors and designs.

For centuries the Vienna Hofburg was the centre of the Habsburg empire. Today the palace houses three museums which afford historically authentic insights into the traditions and everyday life of the imperial court: The Imperial Apartments with their original furnishings and decoration, the Sisi Museum with its sensitive staging of the empress' life, and the Imperial Silver Collection which contains a comprehensive range of tableware and other utensils used at the imperial court.
A must not miss for those interested in the royal history of Austria. The connecting but very differently decorated rooms of the Emperor and his Empress Sisi are amazing to see. They are also arranged well for self guided tours. Near the city center for easy access. The outside architecture should be viewed too. Well worth visit!

Austria's most prominent national symbol, this magnificent Cathedral is known for its intricately tiled roof and its nearly 500-foot-tall South Tower, which provides amazing views of the entire city.
This active Catholic church is nothing more than a tourist destination.
We came to visit at Easter and intended on coming for Easter Vigil or Easter morning mass.
If you are Catholic, if you are Christian, coming here will make you sad. Because it is about selling a ticket, selling a picture, selling your soul.
Exactly what Jesus asked us NOT to do.
