Church round

From the parish church to the pilgrimage church

This path connects the two churches in the municipality of Pernegg: the Frauenkirche, a well-known pilgrimage church and the parish church of St. Maximilian.

The municipality of Pernegg is located directly on the Mur, 10 km south of Bruck an der Mur and 40 km north of Graz. Pernegg has a share in the Murradweg R2 and the mountain bike route Drachentour and is therefore a mecca for cyclists. Through the stations Pernegg and Mixnitz on the Southern Railway Line, the municipality of Pernegg is the gateway to the Almenland.

The "Frauenkirche" in Pernegg is a well-known pilgrimage church with baroque interiors, the parish church on the church hill in Kirchdorf is dedicated to St. Maximilian and is a late Gothic complex with a defensive tower. Along the way is also the show turbine of the Verbund, which can also be easily viewed from the outside thanks to the glass construction.
