Mariazell EYE Views: Kalvarienberg

Nice walk from the main square Mariazell via Heiligen Brunn Gasse to Kalvarienberg.
The Kalvarienberg is one of the top 10 Mariazeller AUGENblicken: Treat yourself to your personal time out and enjoy the unique panorama at the vantage points of the Mariazeller AUGENblicke. There is time to catch your breath and let your gaze wander into the distance on the panoramic spots of Mariazell.

In the summer months we can linger on one of the benches at Calvary and enjoy the view.
