Major alarm in Klosterneuburg: the historic Martinschlössl on the outskirts of Vienna is on fire! The fire department has been battling the blaze since Thursday afternoon. According to initial information, two people were injured.

If the people of Klosterneuburg didn't have their world-famous monastery, the Martinschlössl would be the landmark of the town in the district of Tulln. On Thursday, a fire broke out in the historic building, which was built in 1766 under Ludwig Freiherr von Ripke and is characterized by its idyllic gardens sloping down to the Danube. 

One hundred firefighters in action
The fire department's alert level was correspondingly high, with more than 100 firefighters from Klosterneuburg and its cadastral communities as well as from St. Andrä-Wördern battling the blaze for hours. "The fire probably broke out in the roof area at around 12 noon," says Floriani spokesman Franz Resperger.

The fire had quickly spread to the structure and required "a comprehensive external attack" with two telescopic boom lifts, while several breathing apparatus teams advanced into the interior of the wing.
