Saints and Healing Ways to Mariazell

Open
The hike leads along the Sebastiani - Rosary Way, at the last part of the Via Sacra.

Here you can find small herb gardens at the individual stations of the cross.

The pharmacy and drugstore Zur Gnadenmutter and the well-known place of pilgrimage Mariazell live a centuries-old tradition of pilgrimage and healing of body, mind and soul. Along the famous Sebastiani Rosary Way, on the last section of the pilgrimage route "Via Sacra", small herb gardens can be found at the individual stations of the cross. These are laid out according to ancient custom, with well-known, native medicinal plants from traditional European medicine. During guided walks, visitors learn interesting facts about the effect and application of these medicinal herbs according to ancient knowledge of natural healing. Finally, the path leads over the Calvary to the pharmacy and drugstore Zur Gnadenmutter, where visitors can fortify themselves with a pleasant glass of Mariazeller Wurzelklauber and experience the effects of the medicinal plants for themselves.

You can find out the current dates at the pharmacy Zur Gnadenmutter.

More information

By car from Mariazell via the B20 in the direction of Mitterbach, St. Sebastian's Church is just before Mitterbach on the right side. Parking space is available.
From the Sebastianikirche we walk across meadows and along the edge of the forest along the Rosenkranzweg until we come to the crossroads in the Habertheuer. Here we continue straight ahead, always along the rosary stations with the herb gardens. At the last part of the Sebastianiweg we already have a wonderful view of Mariazell and the basilica (Mariazeller AUGENblicke - Buschniggweg)

At the crossroads Viktor-Lang-Gasse/Schießstattgasse we turn left and after a short steep ascent we reach the Kalvarienberg (Mariazeller AUGENblicke - Kalvarienberg).

From the Kalvarienberg we now descend via the Kreuzweg and the Hl.-Brunn-Gasse to the Hauptplatz Mariazell and further to the Apotheke zur Gnadenmutter, where we can immediately experience the effect of the medicinal herbs for ourselves :-)

And here you can read the blog report of Fred Lindmoser.

This hike can be done in winter with snowshoes - see website!
