Korneuburg

Korneuburg once formed a single town with Klosterneuburg. In 1298 it became independent, and grew into an important trading and administrative centre. Hauptplatz, the main square, is surrounded by houses with late- Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque fa?ades. Other interesting sights include the late-Gothic Agidkirche (church of St Giles) and the Rococo Augustinerkirche (church of St Augustine), whose main altarpiece shows the sky resting on four columns, with God the Father sitting on his throne, holding the Earth in his hand. The altar painting of the Last Supper is the work of Franz Anton Maulbertsch. Burg Kreuzenstein, on the road to Stockerau, is a fascinating folly of a Gothic castle. Built in the 19th century by Count Hans von Wilczek, on the site of a former fortress (1140) that was almost entirely destroyed by Swedish forces during the Thirty Years’ War, it holds the count’s extensive collection of late-Gothic art and handicrafts.
