Campus History

Modul University Vienna is located on top of Kahlenberg, a 425m mountain in the northern forests of Vienna.  This site not only enjoys breathtaking views of the regional vineyards and the river Danube, but also has an interesting story to tell. 
When Vienna was besieged by the Turks in 1683, the liberation armies, led by the polish emperor Ian Sobieski III, stormed down into the city from here and caught the Ottomans by surprise. After Vienna's liberation, the Viennese built the St. Joseph's Church, a beautiful landmark on Kahlenberg, which still overlooks the city today.   The church and peaceful natural surroundings attracted dukes and emperors throughout Vienna's history, but it was emperor Ferdinand II who is credited with transforming Kahlenberg into one of the top touristic locations in Vienna. Kahlenberg is still very popular with visitors and locals alike. Politicians, artists and even popes have visited Kahlenberg and its little church.

The first restaurant and hotel buildings were built in the 1930s when there was still a rack railway going up to the plateau. 
In 2005 the buildings, partly designated as historic monuments, were fundamentally restored and modernized, transforming into a university building that opened its doors to students for the first time in 2007. MU students benefit from the modernized buildings and the natural environment offering great views and trails into the city.
