    Klosterneuburg-Kritzendorf

    December 16, 2016 in Austria

    Kritzendorf was a free stopover just 30 meters away from a train station. We were very close to Vienna and could have hopped on a direct train to visit!

    The thing we'll remember about Kritzendorf is the textile warehouse over the train tracks. We have never seen anywhere with a greater range of fabrics, buttons and ribbon; not even Birmingham rag market! There were two storeys to this huge warehouse and we had to take two trips to take it all in! Like a dressmaker's Aladdin's Cave, there were long walls of floor to ceiling buttons and aisles upon aisles of textiles; Vicky was in heaven! We were very restrained and ended up buying just two meters of a nice grey material with elegant stylised cream heart outlines to make some extra covers for Poppy's bed. The prices were very good and although we only spent €9, they slipped a lovely box of chocolates into our bag for free! Vicky checked afterwards and they weren't even approaching their best before date!Read more

    Klosterneuburg Abbey

    June 26, 2016 in Austria

    Tonight was incredible we had a tour of Klosterneuburg Abbey followed by a concert.

    The Klosterneuburg Monastery, or Stift Klosterneuburg in Austrian, is an Augustinian abbey founded in 1114. The baroque structure, notable for housing men’s and women’s religious orders until 1568, has undergone several facelifts over the years, most recently in 1892.

    The historic abbey dominates the skyline of Klosterneuburg, and the treasures housed within are just as impressive. Among the most valuable and impressive pieces is the enamelled altar of Nikolaus of Verdun, one of the most exquisite examples of medieval enamel work. The altar was made in 1181, depicts a variety of biblical scenes on its 51 panels. Other highlights include a seventeenth century organ, a twelfth century Romanesque candelabra and fourteenth century stained-glass windows.Read more
