Mariazell

... a gift from heaven

Mariazell, located inmidst the delightful alpine scenery of northern Styria, is home to Central Europe’s most famous shrine to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Danube region’s Catholic spiritual centre. 

The statue of the Virgin Mary carved from linden wood was brought to Mariazell by monk Magnus from the Benedictine Monastery St. Lambrecht.  The small chapel or ‘cell’ housing the statue has given Mariazell its name (‘Mary in the cell’).
