Pilgrimage audio guide on the Via Sacra and the Vienna Pilgrimage Trail (German only)

Let yourself be inspired by many stimulating thoughts about pilgrimage on your way to Mariazell.

For pilgrims who are travelling alone but would still like to receive valuable information about the Vienna Pilgrimage Trail and the Via Sacra, an informative pilgrimage audio guide is now available (German only).

Audio guide for on the way

The new pilgrimage audio guide provides pilgrims on the Via Sacra and the Vienna Pilgrimage Trail with inspiring input for their personal pilgrimage and with background information on the places of power along the trails. It is the ideal companion for all those in search for meaning, who like travelling alone and yet do not want to do without valuable inspiration from external sources.

The audio guide can be used as follows:

  • Scanning QR codes along the paths
    Small boards in purple (the signature colour of the Via Sacra trail network) draw attention to the audio stations along the paths. Upon scanning the provided QR codes, you can listen to audio tracks containing food for thought, contemplation, and self-reflection.
  • Via the "Pilgern in Niederösterreich" app (German only)
    Alternatively, you can access the audio commentary via the "Pilgern in Niederösterreich" app. If push notifications are enabled, interested pilgrims will automatically receive notifications for the audio commentary during the hike.

Christa Englinger, who herself is a passionate pilgrimage guide, not only lent her voice to the pilgrimage audio guide but was also significantly involved in developing its contents. And also "in real life", Christa Englinger invites interested pilgrims to join her guided pilgrimage hikes to Mariazell.
