Pilgrimage to Mariazell

March 12, 2012

After taking 7 times one of the eastern routes (book tip: “Pilgerwege nach Mariazell: Band Ost & Nord” by Fritz and Erika Käfer) to Mariazell over Mamauwiese (nice place to stay overnight by the way) via Frein an der Mürz and Schöneben we are going for a partial northern route this time (originally 7 days hike). From St. Pölten over Kaiserkogel and Türnitz to Mariazell – 3 days, 85 km. Try to book your accommodation early, especially when you want to go during Pentecost and just stay for one night. Took me half a day to get it right for 11 pilgrims.

Next years we are going to explore western and southern routes to Mariazell well described in “Pilgerwege nach Mariazell: Band West & Süd”.
