A Marian pilgrimage site on the Austrian Way of St. James
The name comes from a small table, a Taferl with a picture of the Virgin Mary, which has worked wonders. You can read the story about the Taferl in an oak tree at http://www.basilika.at/

The baroque church Maria Taferl is consecrated to the "Painful Mother of God". It was built between 1660 and 1710. The dome was designed by Jakob Prandtauer.
View into the dome
In the church one finds exuberant baroque. The oak with the "Taferl" is built into the altar. You can see this best when you climb up to the museum.

In the left tower countless votive pictures are hanging. Very often the Mariahilf picture serves as a model: See for yourself!
From the terrace in front of the basilica there is a wonderful view over the Danube valley.
On a clear day you can see as far as the Alps.
