400 years Maria Waldrast

The Servite monastery Maria Waldrast in Matrei am Brenner is celebrating its 400th anniversary as a spiritual oasis at the foot of the Serles in the Tyrolean Alps.

Maria Waldrast is one of the highest monasteries in Europe and has been a place of contemplation, prayer and spiritual renewal for pilgrims and visitors for four centuries. On the occasion of its 400th anniversary, the monastery is hosting a series of festive services to mark this anniversary. 

Today: a place of pilgrimage and power. Then as now, Maria Waldrast is a popular pilgrimage destination. Pilgrims, travelers, holidaymakers, adventurers and those seeking peace and quiet from near and far seek refuge, spirituality and relaxation behind the historic monastery walls of the Waldrast Nature Resort.  Maria Waldrast in Matrei am Brenner is also the perfect place for seminars, courses, family celebrations and parties of all kinds.
