Not just for the pious

Churches and monasteries in Burgenland

Whether Protestant or Catholic: Christianity has produced a variety of cultural-historical church buildings and monasteries in Burgenland regardless of their denomination. 

As well as preserving the Burgenland’s religious heritage, they are living breathing monuments to faith. Trade fairs, christenings and weddings are staged here. But the doors are also wide open for anyone who just wants to see the beautiful architectural treasures from bygone days.

Whether chapel or diocese, village church or abbey: Discover your personal place of strength. In many of the churches you can also experience concerts and other cultural performances in the course of interesting programs. Elaborate restorations allow many of the interesting buildings to shine in a completely new light and give never before seen insights into history and belief.

Important evidence of Jewish faith can also be found in Burgenland. The former synagogue in Kobersdorf or Stadtschlaining, the private synagogue in the Austrian Jewish Museum Eisenstadt and the Jewish cemeteries in many communities are testimonies of the religious community that once lived in Burgenland.
