The Mariazell Region - Mysterious World of the Mountains
Mariazeller Land - Geheimnisvolle Bergwelt zwischen Ötscher und Hochschwab
In spring 2007, the basilica of Mariazell has regained its old splendor. Situated amidst the wildly romantic, mysterious alpine environment of the Ítscher mountain in the border region between the provinces of Styria and Lower Austria, the small village is the destination of numerous pilgrims from far and wide. The film traces the old legends about demons, weather witches and dark forces and portrays the natural environment of this unique mountain world around the pilgrimage site of Mariazell.
