Maria Plain Pilgrimage Basilica

Hide map

Prince Archbishop Max Gandolf von Khuenburg had this basilica built in 1674. Not only is it an emblem of Bergheim and a popular excursion destination, it also offers visitors a unique panorama extending from Salzburg City all the way to the Alps.

Mozart's Coronation Mass
Mozart's "Coronation Mass", which was performed at the ceremonial veneration of this painting, may well have its roots in the fact that Mozart would often play the music at Maria Plain during Sunday mass, and would sometimes also take advantage of those occasions to try out fragments of his own compositions.
