Holidays in the pilgrimage village Mariastein
Far away from the hectic rush of a big city Mariastein is situated at 575 m sea level embedded in dense, green forests, framed by the Tyrolean Inn Mountains. With just 300 inhabitants Mariastein is the smallest mountain community in the district Kufstein.
It is well-known as a place of pilgrimage. People from all over the world come to the little village since also the famous way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela leads through Mariastein.
In summer Mariastein is an ideal place to go hiking or cycling. It is also perfect for a holiday with children – you find green forests, lush meadows and close by swimming possibilities.
In winter the largest interconnected ski area, the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental is just around the corner. Even off-piste you won’t get bored: guided winter walks, snowshoe hiking tours, tobogganing, horse-drawn carriage and sleigh rides as well as many more cultural and sporty activities will make your holiday an unforgettable one.
There are 150 steps up to the Chapel of Mercy in the tower of the Mariastein pilgrimage church. The climb is worth it though. Since the Middle Ages believers have come from far away to see the famous Gothic picture of the Virgin Mary. The pilgrimage church Mariastein is a perfect excursion destination for the whole family.
