This is a Medieval Abby founded in 1113. It is a Cistercian monastery in the village of Heilingenkreuz in the southern part of the Vienna woods. It is the oldest continuously occupied Cistercian monastery in the world. Very impressive.

An obligatory stop in a Vienna Wood trip - really interesting and beautiful place. Ancient abbey is still breathing with the medieval air. Must see.
