Klosterneuburg, Austria, a scenic mountain destination, is dominated by its famed baroque church.

The north section of Klosterneuburg, called Kierling, is where there's an Augustinian abbey, founded in 1114. There's also a wine cellar with the famous tausendeimerfass, a barrel over which the people slide on 15 November to celebrate the birthday of the convent's founder—a big public festival celebrated with music, food and parades.

Klosterneuburg is about 12 mi/20 km north of Vienna, close enough to feel like a suburb. The Essl Museum of Contemporary Art is also located in the town, and there are two main shopping areas at Niedermarkt and Rathausplatz.
