Mariazell (at an altitude of 868 - 1266 m), one of Europes most renowned places of pilgrimage, looks back to a rich history of art and culture. Besides the basilica, many churches and holy places, much more is to be found in this small village with its 1947
inhabitants. Enjoy a nostalgic train ride on the famous 'Mariazellerbahn' train and the amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Landscape, fauna and flora present themselves in manifold variations and colours. Fountains, rivers and lakes invite the visitor
for sports and recreation. Adventurers, nature lovers and those who prefer town life will all enjoy themselves here. Bruck, a town of cultural interest, and Kapfenberg, the economic and sporting centre of Upper Styria, constitute a vivid contrast to the idyll
and diversity of nature.
