The beginnings of the Pöstlingbergkirche go back to the year 1716 and in the following years it developed into a popular pilgrimage and pilgrimage site.
Today the church is looked after by the Order of Oblate Sisters of St.
Francis of Sales (they see their work as a service to others and dedicate themselves above all to youth education, such as girls' homes, schools, kindergartens, religious education at public schools and in the missions, and also as nurses).Already in prehistoric times people pilgrimaged to the Pöstlingberg - however to a stone chasm, which is on the hiking trail starting from the Collegium Petrinum (parallel to today's Way of the Cross) in the forest on approx.
3/4 height from the Pöstlingberg.
In all seasons you can meet people who are looking for peace and quiet or strength.
Particularly at night, when many candles light up the stone gorge with a Madonna and the surrounding forest, this place radiates a special mysticism.
If you are looking for a healing place close to the turbulent city life, this is the right place for you!
