Museum in Tyrol: a piece of Austrian history
The four-star hotel in Mariastein combines comfort and culture under one roof. A local museum is located in the Mariasteinerhof that pays tribute to Tyrolean tradition.
The village of Mariastein is not just famous for the local museum at the Mariasteinerhof and the Castle Museum in Tyrol but also due to the Mariastein pilgrimage church. Pilgrims looking for hope have been coming to the Mariastein Chapel of Mercy, which was built in 1460 by the Lords of Ebbs, for centuries. Baron Karl von Schlurff bought the chapel 100 years later and took the Tyrolean statue of the Virgin Mary with him to Bavaria.
According to legend, the statue was back in its original place in the chapel in Mariastein again the very next day. This "miracle" made the church in Mariastein into a popular pilgrimage site.
Both the pilgrimage church and Castle Museum are located very close to the Mariasteinerhof and can therefore be easily reached by guests at the four-star hotel. Fancy a holiday in Mariastein in Tyrol? Send us your no-obligation enquiry or give us a call on +43 5332 56717.
