Maria Plain

Pilgrimage church on a hill with a vast panoramic view.

Maria Plain is a church in Salzburg. This famous tourist attraction stands on a hill north of the city and offers of a spectacular panoramic view of Salzburg and the scenic Alpine backdrop. It’s a must-see for every visitor who comes to Salzburg.

Today, the renowned pilgrimage church Maria Plain, its calvary hill and the natural landscape surrounding it attract people from all over the world. The panoramic view of the city and  neighbouring Bavaria is simply sensational. That is probably also one of the reasons why this basilica is known as one of Salzburg’s most beautiful wedding locations. The church’s interior is a unified synthesis of baroque arts featuring numerous, impressive art works. The calvary hill consists of four chapels that lead to a crucifixion group. This place of pilgrimage was also beloved by the Mozart family.

You can visit Maria Plain on our Singing Silent Night Tour. The tour makes a stopover here on our way to the Silent Night Chapel in Oberndorf – and who knows, maybe a musical surprise awaits you here as well. After all, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Coronation Mass for the Maria Plain Coronation Festival. Maria Plain is also included as a significant stop on the Salzburg Panorama Tour.

The combination of breathtaking scenery and rich musical history ensures that a visit to Maria Plain is an unforgettable highlight of the Salzburg Panorama Tour.
