Heiligenkreuz is surrounded by the large Viennse forest in the south of the Austrian capital Vienna. Heiligenkreuz has motorway connection, and is easy to reach.

The Stift Heiligenkreuz monastery, also known as Holy Cross monastery, Cistercian Monastery, or Closter Heiligen Creyz (or Creuz), was founded in 1133 by the holy Leopold III from the Babenberger family.

In 1683 the monastery was destroyed by the Turks. It was rebuilt under abbot Klemens Schäfer and transformed into baroque style.
