Pilgrimage in Burgenland
St. James' Way Burgenland
Start in Frauenkirchen to discover St. James' Way in Burgenland!
Every year, nearly 200.000 people pilgrimage through Europe along St. James' Way. Although the route passes through Austria too, it does not go through Burgenland. A private initiative changed this and now St. James way passes through northern Burgenland too.
The basilica in Frauenkirchen is the starting point for the first St. James' Way in Burgenland. The route is described for pilgrims and hikers on a board in front of the pilgrimage church.
The 52-kilometer hike leads from Frauenkirchen via Halbturn to Neusiedl am See, to the small Lower Austrian place of pilgrimage, Maria Ellend, in the district Bruck an der Leitha. The Burgenland route joins the international St. James' Way in Maria Ellend.
Discover the international "Mária-Út", Mary's Way, which leads directly past the St. Martins Thermal Baths & Lodge.
The PILGRIMS GATE "MARY ON THE MOOR" stands for arriving after a long journey or setting out towards a goal. The spiritual renewal of the pilgrimage is meant to prepare pilgrims for a worthy entry into the basilica through this visible monument.
Frauenkirchen is the intersection of old pilgrimage routes. Thanks to initiatives undertaken by the association "Friends of the Basilica", this place of grace was connected to the international pilgrimage route "Mária út".
This Mary's Way connects the two Marian sanctuaries Mariazell and Frauenkirchen. The beginning and end are at the Frauenkirchen Basilica. The route passes by the basilica, through the city, past St. Martins Thermal Baths & Lodge, Zicksee Lake, the Lange Lacke Lake, the federal border between Pamhagen and Apetlon and finally to Mariazell via Hungary.
