  • Very nice church which should be a must at any time a visit. But you have to take enough time.

  • Beautiful monastery complex that can be visited free of charge. You should inform yourself in advance whether there are any divine services or concerts during which one cannot enter the complex or only to a limited extent. The actual church is very magnificent and bright. Very impressive is the chapel, which is carved into the rock.

  • Church with adjacent underground Grotte (chapel in cave). The church is dedicated to Mary. The story is that a family used to reside in the cave, and that Mary appeared to save the little girl from falling of a cliff. There are beautiful paintings inside the church depicting this, as well as other Gothic decorations. Nice surrounding area as well.
  • After Einsiedeln, is the second most important place of pilgrimage in Switzerland. Mariastein Abbey is a Benedictine monastery in the Canton of Solothurn, Switzerland. Over the Chapel of Grace ("Gnadenkapelle") now stands a late Gothic three-aisled basilica. The interior is Baroque and the entrance facade classicist. It is the most important touristic attraction to visit in the area.
