Round Tour Pilgrimage Church Mariastein

Note
This tour leads you from the tourist information office in the centre of Wörgl via Angerberg to Mariastein and back again. After crossing the Innsteg foot bridge a steep climb takes you up to Achleit, a district of Angerberg. Pass the inn Blick ins Inntal and then go along the more or less even tarmacked road via the district Baumgarten and past the same-called inn. At both inns you have the possibility to charge the batteries of your e-bike. In Mariastein, at the hotel Mariasteinerhof you also have the chance to charge the battery of your bike or you can rent a Movelo e-bike. The tour continues past the pilgrimage church which is definitely worth visiting. Every year, numerous pilgrims and visitors come to the famous pilgrimage church which is situated on a rough,12m high rock.. The former 42m high defensive tower was built by the Freundsberger gender in 1360 and served to protect the old Roman road. After the climb of 150 steps up to the Gnaden Chapel in the tower of the pilgrimage church you’ll be rewarded with the sight of the famous Gothic Madonna which had believers come to “Mary on stone” from the far and near since the late Middle Age. There are lots of interesting things and artefacts to see in the castle museum of the church. Get on with your tour via the calm district of Embach, past several lovely small chapels before getting to Achleit again from where you enjoy a wonderful view over Wörgl and the Inn Valley. Then take the same way back to Wörgl.
