Pilgrimage church Maria Dürrnberg
Early baroque church in the center of Bad Dürrnberg
The pilgrimage church of Maria Dürrnberg towers high above Hallein in the beautiful spa town and was the destination of pilgrims early on. The early baroque, red marble church, built in the Italian hall style, was built between 1596 and 1614. The picturesque parish and pilgrimage church is a listed building.
The place of pilgrimage celebrated a significant festival in 1817 on the occasion of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the consecration of the church. But already in pre-Christian times, the so-called witch’s wall below the church belonged to the cult sites of antiquity, which can be seen, for example, the pentagrams and sun wheels carved into the rock.
