What does this have to do with our Wagrain-Kleinarl Valley? In 1837 Joseph Mohr came to Wagrain and took care of the needy in the parish as parish vicar. Joseph Mohr then died in Wagrain in 1848 and his grave can still be visited today in the cemetery of the Wagrain parish church. Wagrain is also one of the six Silent Night sites in the province of Salzburg. In each of these places there are numerous reminders of Mohr and his great work. In Wagrain you will find the Silent Night Museum in the Pflegerschlössl, the Joseph Mohr School, the aforementioned Joseph Mohr Grave, the "Silent Night" Carol Concert and the annual Joseph Mohr Memorial Concert.
You can also experience this history on the culture walk in Wagrain. You can walk this path on your own, with a guide or with an audio guide. You should allow about 1.5 hours for it. Our online guide "Hearonymus" can be downloaded free of charge in German and English. You can find it directly in your App Store. Then all you have to do is enter the keyword "Wagrain" and your walk will be enhanced with exciting details about Wagrain.
I'm sure some of you have also noticed that Joseph Mohr will be 230 years old this year, on 11 December 2022 to be precise. Isn't it cool that the lyricist of this great Christmas carol was even born during Advent? Some things really do seem preordained. By the way, you can visit the Silent Night Museum during Advent on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. In addition, our Advent market with children's bakery takes place every Advent Saturday from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm. So a visit to the Silent Night Museum in the Pflegerschlössl on Saturday is definitely worth it! The one or other mulled wine or punch is already waiting for you.
