Municipality of Leitzersdorf

Pure nature.

From Mount Michelberg, pilgrims follow the path over Mount Waschberg to Leitzersdorf, the location of the second St. James' church on the entire route.

The section of the Way of St. James in the Weinviertel region leading to Leitzersdorf also has a very special natural treat in store for pilgrims.

Mount Waschberg

With 388 m, Mount Waschberg is Leitzersdorf's local mountain. It is embedded in the Natura 2000 sanctuary Weinviertler Klippenzone (Weinviertel cliff zone). Its wildlife is very impressive - rare orchids grow along the path and the variety of animal species is captivating.

St. James church Leitzersdorf

When you reach Leitzersdorf, you are welcomed by the Leitzersdorf St. James' church - after Falkenstein, the second St. James' church on the Way of St. James in the Weinviertel region. The church stands out with its Gothic side chapel from the 14th century and its Baroque altar dating back to 1756 in the right side aisle. After extensive renovational work in the area of the church hall and the altar, Leitzersdorf's St. James' church gleams in new splendour. Its parsonage is also executed in Baroque style and dates back to 1737.
