MARIAN PILGRIMAGE CHURCH
For many pilgrims, tourists and art lovers, the Grossgmainer Marienwallfahrtskirche is one of the most important destinations on their journey to the Salzburg area. As one of the oldest and most artistic pilgrimages in the Salzburg region, the Church of the Mother of Grace "auf der Gmain" has a special religious and also cultural aura. With the "Beautiful Madonna", dating from 1395, and the magnificent Gothic panel paintings by the Master of Großgmain from 1499, the Church of Our Lady not only provides an eye-catcher for its guests. For centuries, countless people have made pilgrimages to the pilgrimage church in the shadow of the legendary Untersberg mountain to ask for blessings and help. The two miracle tablets in St. Mary's Church from 1513 tell of the prayers heard through the intercession of Mary. The actual miraculous image of the "Beautiful Madonna" from around 1400 shows Mary with the Child Jesus. Since the 15th century, the Madonna from Großgmain has been venerated as a miracle-worker. The pilgrims to "Our Lady of the Gmain" come with the hope that Mary cannot refuse any of her petitions. They express their faithful conviction in the well-known prayer of St. Bernhard.
