Mariazell is a small city in Austria, in Styria. It is picturesquely situated in the valley of the Salza, amid the north Styrian Alps.
It is a site of pilgrimage for Catholics from Austria and neighboring countries. The object of veneration is an image of the Virgin Mary reputed to work miracles, carved in lime-tree wood. This was brought to the place in 1157, and is now enshrined in a chapel adorned with objects of silver and other costly materials. The large church of which the chapel forms part was erected in 1644 as an expansion of a smaller church built by Louis I, King of Hungary, after a victory over the Ottoman Empire in 1363.

Mariazell, a small city with a big heart! ❤ Situated amid the north Styrian Alps, Mariazell is a cozy and peaceful place to be, with tiny streets, small shops, little sweet cafés and welcoming locals. The locals prepare for the winter season by sculpturing in wood various forms of fir trees and stars which they place along the streets with nice candles inside. Aproximately all around the city there are loudspeakers singing carols and filling the atmosphere with joy and a sense of festivity.
The most famous attraction is the Mariazell Basillica built in the baroque style. Also, the town is famous for its liquor factory and gingerbread factory, where you can have the pleasure to taste a little bit from the delightful specialities with secret recipes and see the workers baking. In the gingerbread factory there is even the town Mariazell made from gingerbread and marzipan.😍
In a tiny corner of Mariazell, a manger (Krippe) with a donkey, a calf and a lamb waits peacefully to be discovered by children and adults as well.
