Mariastein monastery

The place of pilgrimage at the Mariastein monastery is not only impressive due to its late-Gothic architecture, it is also remarkable for the exquisite painting and artworks it houses.

The beginning of the story of the Mariastein is shrouded in legend. It is said that a young boy fell over the cliffs into the valley and only survived thanks to the miraculous intervention of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. After Einsiedeln, Mariastein is the most famous place of pilgrimage in Switzerland and is an ideal excursion for those who wish to combine a trip to this famous monastery with a wonderful and energetic hike.
