Danube Limes (ID No 29) Klosterneuburg – Kastell und Vicus - "A large part of the fort is hidden underneath the abbey of the Augustinian canons, which was founded in the 12th century, and is thus not visible. A few areas have been examined archeologically (...) and are today on display. The buildings of the fort below the abbey courtyards and the surrounding open areas have never been examined, while the historic buildings of the abbey also integrate substantial ancient structure."
