is a winegrowing community in the heart of the Northern Weinviertel,
near the Czech border. It is not only popular because of its excellent
white and red wine, but also because of its hospitable and open minded
is located on history-charged grounds. Fossil records of the ridge that
is located south of the village indicate the littoral of the Tertian sea,
which was situated here 70 million years ago. Bones of mammoth, wooly
rhino etc. from the ice age were found there. The oldest evidences of
human culture are those of a Lower Paleolithic hunting station (about
28.000 years old). Many prehistoric fossil records indicate a probably
partly settlement of our vicinity. The first mention of an estate called
“Adalberno-Villa” dates back to the year 1100, when a man called
Adeloth, who called himself Adelberndorfer, received a tenure. In the
aftermath, border disputes between the Habsburgs and Bohemia again and
again took place in the Pulkautal and also in Alberndorf. When there was
peace in between, other afflictions fell upon us. Famines, locust swarms,
floods, a big drought, the plague and cholera, and then again warhordes,
such as Hussits, Turks, Swedes, French, Prussians and the First and the
Second World War did not spare us.
– or maybe just because of that – our inhabitants always were and
still are open minded and respond to the wishes of their guests more
open minded than other people elsewhere. We have learned to live life.
Alberndorf is located in 197m sea level and is home to about 738 people.
According to the census of 2001 Alberndorf obtained a rise in population of 12.81% since 1991. Therewith we are in the vanguard of the 24 communities in the district of Hollabrunn. A result which rightly makes us proud.
