Highlights

  • The Leopoldsberg (425 m, 1,394 ft) is perhaps Vienna's most famous hill, towering over the Danube and the city.
  • Leopoldberg's most prominent landmark is a church on the summit which is clearly visible from Vienna below.
  • The construction of Saint Leopold's Church on Leopoldsberg began in 1679; an expansion following a design by Antonio Beduzzi was undertaken from 1718 to 1730. Other renovations were to follow.
  • Across the square from the church, on what used to be a tower of the fortification system, a memorial to those Austrians who returned home from captivity after World War II was created in 1948.
