Orangery at Klosterneuburg Abbey

Inside the orangery of Klosterneuburg Monastery, Austria

After a walk through the seven gardens of Klosterneuburg Monastery (Stift Klosterneuburg) near Vienna I also visited the orangery of the monastery. Inside I  was very surprised by this ensemble including an old world map showing the route of an exploring journey done by the Austrian ship ‘SMS Novara‘.

Though one found a lot of material dating back to the Roman Empire below the streets of Klosterneuburg the name of the Roman settlement is still unknown. Some pieces of the military detachment based in a Roman fort along the Danube Limes are shown in an exhibition room of Klosterneuburg Monastery (Stift Klosterneuburg) depicted above.

Contemporary art at Klosterneuburg Monastery, Austria

While my visit at Klosterneuburg Monastery I came across several examples of contemporary art which were partly well hidden in the structures of the monastery. For example I discovered this red ‘thing’ in the cloistered courtyard  by glimpsing through an open window.
