Traditional pilgrimage destinations include not only Rome, Jerusalem or Santiago de Compostela. For many centuries, pilgrims have also enjoyed following the classic VIA SACRA route from Vienna via Lilienfeld to Mariazell. Pilgrimage represents our journey through life. Walking and praying open people up – a prerequisite for coming close to God. Open hearts can receive and give more easily.

From Lilienfeld onwards, the Via Sacra is dotted with small sacred monuments that invite pilgrims to contemplate and pray. A particularly powerful sacred art monument is the Lilienfeld Calvary, a representation of the Passion of Christ erected in the open air with over 20 statues near the Lilienfeld hospital.
