The market town Pressbaum is situated at an altelevation itude of 314 m in the upper parts of the river Wien valley in the Wienerwald (Vienna Woods) region west of Vienna. It is a traditional summer holiday resort and residential suburb of Vienna. Ambiguities about the correct spelling of the name ('Pressbaum' vs 'Preßbaum') were resolved in 1962 when the municipality decided in favour of Pressbaum.
The Institut Sacré Cœur [top] has its origin in Vienna, where the convent was founded in 1868. In 1891 the nuns
received a piece of land in Pressbaum as a donation from Emperor Franz Joseph I. The new convent and school were built in 18911894. Since 1975, the
school is operated by the Archdiocese of Vienna.
