The heart of the Wachau

In terms of tourism, Weißenkirchen not only offers wine culture and the beautiful fortified church from the 14th century but is also known for the gourmet paradise as well as the Wachauhalle, where plays and cabarets are performed.

Hiking and biking trails, wine taverns, the Wachau museum and the festival make Weißenkirchen the ideal holiday destination for young and old.

Fortified Church & Teisenhoferhof

The important church fortress is a sight for all those interested in culture. The Gothic furnishings, oil paintings and monumental figures of saints together with the rococo organ from 1775 form a histori-cal eye-catcher.

Together with the Teisenhoferhof, the fortified church of the Assumption of Mary becomes a fortifica-tion. Individual remains of the wall from the 13th century indicate the impressive story that this build-ing has to tell. Late Gothic extensions as well as the preserved towers and walls make this place an eye-catcher, where cultural and public events invite you to experience.
