This is where 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.


This is where the song actually came into being.
We visit the former sacristan house where Franz Gruber lived and taught his pupils.
We also have the chance to view "Maria in Mösl", Austria's oldest pilgrimage church of the Virgin Mary, where Gruber was sacristan and organist from 1807 to 1829.
