Without doubt, one of the greatest joys in life is to take on something difficult and then to relish and revel in the reward. Pilgrims know this. Mariazell "Magna Mater Austriae" was once the undisputed capital of Christian Europe. Today, Mariazell is still a showpiece and pilgrims are not relegated to the past. On the contrary: they have a secure future. Of course, many visitors make the journey just to see the sights: the basilica, the images of the Virgin, the beautiful landscape.
If you had to choose which mountain deserved the title 'especially Styrian', the Hochschwab would be at the top of the list. The Hochschwab, that beautiful colossus, has been challenging hikers for generations. You can hike here, climb here and also hunt here. No other place boasts as many chamois. In fact, you are almost guaranteed to spot one. Alternative: Winter description
