St. Leonhard Parish Church



Church worth seeing in Marchfeld: The parish church Eckartsau, steeped in history, is dedicated to St. Leonhard of Limoges. The Roman Catholic church dates in its medieval core from the 14th century. In 1703 the church was baroqueized, while the original ground plan was preserved. Today it is a listed building. Particularly worth seeing is, among other things, the baroque high altar from the 18th century with a painting by Vitus Hrdlicka from 1762. In turn, the late Gothic figure of St. Leonhard dates back to around 1500. The organ dates back to 1737, a bell to 1679.

The parish of Eckartsau is located in the vicariate of Unter dem Manhartsberg. More than 650 believers live in the parish. The services of the parish church of St. Leonhard - which is always open from Monday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. - are held on Wednesday and Sunday.
