Maria Alm in Salzburgerland, Austria is an ancient place of pilgrimage – many people used to come here in the past to recharge their batteries for their everyday lives.In addition to the parish pilgrimage church of Maria Alm, the Chapel of Peace has been here since 1988. It was built to create a place of quiet, of contemplation and of prayer. It is ecumenically oriented, in the spirit of Taizé. To evoke quietness, there are symbols from nature (stone, a disc of wood, a water bowl ). On the way to the Room of Quietness there are 12 display boards about world religions, world peace and world ethos. The labyrinth in Maria Alm was created in 2003 and was inspired by a labyrinth at the Kathedrale San Vitale in Ravenna.
The chapel is only accessible by foot. Downstairs in the “Haus der Begegnung” (“Meeting House” near to the church) there is an inter-religious Room of Quietness
