For many people, nature is a sacred space. The connection between mountains and faith is as old as human culture itself. Now is the time of the year when people like to worship on mountains. The scent of fresh mountain air and the breath-taking views make mountain services a very special experience. And you can be there!
Closer to heaven
On Saturday, 18th September 2021, the annual mountain mass takes place on the “Zwölferkogel” - a mountain in the Dachstein massif with wonderful views.
