Kettlasbrunn is a village in the district of Mistelbach , Lower Austria , and a locality and since 1972 a cadastral municipality of the district capital Mistelbach an der Zaya . It is about 7 km east of the city, near the B7. The village of Kettlasbrunn is located in the valley of the Kettlasbach and comprises 281 houses and 540 inhabitants.


On December 14, 1055, Kettlasbrunn was mentioned for the first time (Govatisbrunnen), as a noble Richwin who participated in an uprising against Emperor Heinrich III. had been involved, his fief was declared forfeit. A (Celtic) grave uncovered in 1901, in which a clay pot was found, shows that the area was walked on, perhaps inhabited, by people earlier.

Compared to other settlements, the place has suffered particularly badly from the consequences of wars, storms, epidemics and fires over the years. Some of these catastrophes are still remembered today on days of remembrance and pilgrimages, which owe their origin to pious vows during these sad times. Since the plague year 1613/14, the feast of Saint Sebastian (church patron) is still held as a day of prayer, penance and fast.


Parish church Kettlasbrunn

The Roman Catholic parish church in Kettlasbrunn is a pilgrimage church and is dedicated to St. Sebastian, whose patronage is celebrated on January 20th. It was built as a simple country baroque church with a spacious interior. There are simple art nouveau paintings and an admirable holy grave.

Since 1614 the community has been fulfilling a vow to always celebrate the feast of St. Sebastian as a day of prayer, penance and fast because of the plague that occurred at that time.

A consecrated image of saints hung on the picture tube that stood on the road from Kettlasbrunn to Blumenthal at the edge of the forest. However, this was uprooted during a storm and, since it is the landmark of Kettlasbrunn, has received its final resting place in the tree circle.


Kettlasbrunn belongs to the Lower Austrian Weinviertel , the largest wine-growing region in Austria. Wine is also grown in the village.
