Oberndorf

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.

Arnsdorf

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.

Hallein

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.
