Late summer fair at Klein-Mariazell @ Basilica Klein-Mariazell
Sep 23 @ 12:00 – 22:00

Basilica Klein-Mariazell

The friends association ICARUS4all invites its members to Klein-Mariazell in the region “Mariazell im Wienerwald” in the surroundings of Vienna!


Benefit from this opportunity and visit the pilgrimage site “Klein-Mariazell”! At the beginning, we offer you a guided tour through the Basilica Klein-Mariazell by Thomas Aigner (president ICARUS). The former Benedictine abbey was founded in the early 12th century and repealed 1782. The magnificent Romanic and baroque treasures are really worth seeing!

This classy ambience provides the framework for the ICARUS4all-general meeting and the review of 15 years Monasterium. For those, who don’t know Monasterium yet: It is the biggest virtual documents archive of Europe and one of three online-platforms (Monasterium, Topothek, Matricula), which have been initiated and are being operated by the International Centre of Archival Research (ICARUS). As a member of the ICARUS4all community, you support its continuation.

In order to experience this beautiful landscape actively, we invite those, who enjoy hiking, to a joint hike to the Hafnerberg (ca. 1,5 hours). There, our ICARUS president guides through the worth-seeing baroque pilgrimage church.

For those of us, who prefer to move motorised, we have an alternative programme: you get a guided tour through the baroque pilgrimage church Dornau-Thenneberg.

Over delicious regional food and drink and while listening to live music, we will enjoy the evening at the “Gasthaus zum Kleinen Semmering”. It is located at the Hafnerberg.

Important info: Arrival and departure have to be organised by oneself, as usual. If enough participants are interested in a shuttlebus, we consider to book one from Vienna central train station to Klein-Mariazell and return. This is one important question, that we ask you to answer via our registration form on time (at latest until 4th September)! The cost sharing fee for the shuttlebus accounts for 10 Euro (there and back) per person (regular bus-ticket ÖBB-Postbus costs 13,20 Euro per direction). We kindly ask you to pay cash in the bus.

The event language is German. For additional information about place and history (DE) click here. Brief history of the three pilgrimage churches.
