MARIAZELL - YOUR VILLAGE
Mariazell is as rich and splendid as Europe itself. The treasure chambers, votive paintings and the votive offerings of countless pilgrims bear witness to the generations of people who have passed through here. The Mariazell Statue of Grace, the Magna Mater Austriae ? Magna Domina Hungarorum ? Mater Gentium Slavorum, provides inspiration to pilgrims regarding the purpose of their own life's journey.
The spirituality and the divine inspiration of this site, the varied landscape and the numerous leisure, cultural and sports amenities give this region its unique charm. The countryside around Mariazell is the ideal location for relaxing and recharging your batteries. Besides the many things to see and do, you can also just sit back and relax.
Last year Mariazell celebrated its 850th anniversary, which was marked by the visit of Pope Benedict XVI and thousands of pilgrims and believers. It has always been a site of pilgrimage at which European community is celebrated as the coming together of people of different languages, cultures and nations. With this in mind, why not celebrate the European idea by meeting in the Mariazell Europeum ? a full-service conference and convention venue next to the basilica. Covering 4,500m² and accommodating 1,200 people, it will be completed by October 2008.
