Stift Klosterneuburg, Klosterneuburg, Austria 🇦🇹 Translated from German, Stift Klosterneuburg means Klosterneuburg Monastery.
This Monastery was founded in the 12th century by Saint Leopold III of Babenberg, the patron saint of Austria, and his second wife Agnes of Germany.
A Gothic chapel from this time still stands today.
The wonderful baroque architecture was added in the 17th century when this beautiful complex we see today was constructed.
There were plans to change the architecture further by adding in some neo-gothic tones. That plan was not completely carried out. They changed only a few bits.
Throughout the years, every generation has added in their bit. From the paintings, to the architectural design.
You must watch out for the altar of this monastery. It was made by Nicholas of Verdun in 1181. Verdun was known in the medieval times as a goldsmith.
Isn’t it just incredible!?
