Winter hike
Wallfahrtskirche Mariastein

This idyllic winter hike between Angerberg and the pretty village of Mariastein is so short and easy that many pilgrims on their way to the famous Wallfahrtskirche Mariastein church take on the added challenge of climbing the 150 steps to the top of the church's mighty tower. Despite its name, the church is in fact a castle - its 42-metre-high tower helped keep watch over the Roman road which passes nearby. Built in the 14tjh century, it did not become a place of pilgrimage until the 18th century when Mary appeared to a visitor. Architectural highlights within the building include the "Prince's Room" with its carved wooden ceiling, a museum displaying the archducal hat traditionally worn by the Princes of Tirol, a gothic chapel with religious paintings dating back to 1450 and a rococo altar. The nearby Mariasteinerhof inn serves excellent food.
