Maria Plain has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries. Located to the north of the city, the pilgrimage route to the church makes an extremely pleasant walk. The walk begins at Plainbrücke on Itzlinger Hauptstraße, continues along Plainbergweg, past several churches at Kalvarienberg and then on the Maria Plain itself. The church itself dates to the baroque period and inspired Mozart to compose his famous "Krönungsmesse." Salzburg can be seen in the distance from the square in front of the church. The walk is highly recommended for anyone wishing to explore the area around Salzburg.
