Reflection, Contemplation & Moments of Peace –
Journey for groups to Tyrol’s most important Marian pilgrimage destination & the St. James’ Way
Within the framework of a guided theme tour, “Pilgrimage – then and now”, visitors are able to discover the most important sights, churches and abbeys of Hall in Tirol as well as the incredibly significant pilgrimage destination of Absam. Since the Virgin Mary appeared to Rosina Bucher there in 1797, it has drawn pilgrims from near and far. During a visit to the famous pilgrimage church – Absam basilica, the spiritual centre of the most famous Marian pilgrimage site in Tyrol – guests gain fascinating insights into the region’s pilgrimage traditions.
As they take a guided walk along the Path of Reflection in Gnadenwald, visitors are able to experience the pristine countryside between Walderkapelle chapel and St. Martin’s Abbey. This pleasant walking tour draws our attention to the otherwise unremarkable and matter-of-course, all the while oriented towards the Beatitudes of Jesus Christ. It allows us to forget the daily routine, giving us peace and strength, moments to collect our thoughts and discover our true selves.
