Stift

Interesting
This still-active Cistercian Abbey was founded by Margrave Leopold III of Babenberg as a burial place for his family. It still has the church, the cloisters with very old grisaille stained-glass windows and the Babenberg tombs from the Middle Ages. The other buildings and decoration mostly date from the 17C and 19C. Many works by the Venetian Giuliani (1663-1744) are displayed here.
