PART:  2 Sightseeingtour by Bus


In Oberndorf, the paths of the two spiritual fathers of the song crossed for the first time: Franz Gruber was organist in the parish church and Joseph Mohr came to Oberndorf as assistant priest in 1817.
The song was first performed in the church of St. Nicholas on Christmas Eve 1818: The birth of a carol that would inspire millions of people all over the globe. We visit the famous Silent Night Memorial Chapel.


In Arnsdorf, the song actually came into being since it was here that Gruber thought of the melody. We visit the former sacristan house where Franz Gruber lived and worked as a teacher. We will also see "Maria im Mösl", Austria’s oldest pilgrimage church of the Virgin Mary, where Gruber was sacristan and organist from 1807 to 1829.


Franz Xaver Gruber spent the second half of his life in Hallein: He was cantor and organist for 28 years. This is where he died in 1863. We visit the “Gruber-Haus” where he lived and worked and today his personal belongings including original notes and the famous guitar are on display. In front of the house, opposite the local parish church, you will find his final resting place.

Part 3 Original Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr Menu

That's how "Silent Night, Holy Night" tasted 200 years ago!
This year, the world-famous Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night" celebrates a memorable anniversary: it was first performed 200 years ago in Oberndorf near Salzburg. Reason enough for the restaurant “Zum Hirschenwirt” to honor this event with a culinary celebration: with the "Original Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr Menu", named after the two authors of the carol.

The menu is based on extensive research into the historical source. The individual dishes were gleaned, with academic support, from historical shopping lists, diary entries and chronicles - all ingredients were eaten or bought by one of the two gentlemen at that time. The outward sign of the protected tradition is the patented and certified brand "Original Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr Menu".

The carol went around the world; the menu will enchant you!

The Original Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr Menu will be served exclusively in the restaurant “Zum Hirschenwirt” from 22 November to 22 December 2018. Make reservations for you now and enjoy this exclusive culinary attraction during an Advent season stay in Salzburg!

P.S.: Of course, each guest may keep the menu card provided with the certificate as a reminder!
