Tranquil and reflective hiking destination via Ehnbachklamm Gorge
There are many Calvaries in Austria but the one in Zirl is something special: the Calvary Chapel in Zirl sits proudly above the impressive Ehnbachklamm Gorge – its steeple pointing heavenwards.
It was customary in the 18th century to build Calvaries in places of particular beauty, on hills or on elevations. This tradition was fulfilled in Zirl at the start of the 19th century: from 1803 to 1805, a church was built on a rocky hill with stunning views thanks to an initiative led by Thomas Tiefenbrunner from Zirl. The church is home to a Baroque high altar with a red canopy – a gift from Stams Abbey – and features a truly special organ from the 30s, which was once constructed by organ builder Josef Aigner.
The mountain and church are an oasis of relaxation, a place of reflection and a sacred place for the people of Zirl. The picturesque little church is particularly popular to visit during Lent.
