Kreuzenstein Fortress

Castle, Fortress


Kreuzenstein Fortress was a medieval fortification near Leobendorf in Lower Austria, just a few kilometers to the north of Vienna.

Impressive Kreuzenstein Fortress is perched on a hilltop about 260m above the Danube Valley and can be seen from far and wide. It is a must-see for all fans of fortresses and the Middle Ages and for romantics wishing to travel back in time. This completely furnished fortress makes those travels all the easier.

The castle can only be viewed on a guided tour. Tours are available on the full hour and last between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the group. Special children tours can be conducted for school groups on prior arrangement.
