Klosterneuburg Abbey is located northwest of Vienna in the town of Klosterneuburg in Lower Austria. It belongs to the Congregation of Austrian Augustinian Canons. The complex goes back to a foundation at the beginning of the 12th century by the Austrian Margrave Leopold III. returned to the saint together with his wife Agnes von Waiblingen.

From the beginning until 1722, the original foundation was a double monastery with Augustinian nuns. The well-preserved remains of the Chorfrauenkirche St. Magdalena on Stiftsplatz still bear witness to this today. In later centuries, the complex was expanded and rebuilt several times, so that today it presents itself as a conglomerate of medieval, baroque and historicist buildings. Klosterneuburg Abbey is considered a living center of the Catholic faith, houses an important art collection and the oldest and one of the largest wineries in Austria.
