““Schmerzhaften Muttergottes, Maria in der Rose””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

1486, “Mother of Sorrows” (Mater Dolorosa) Gothic pilgrimage church which was built for the grace image “Mother of God” (Pietà) in Rosary dating back to1400, the church is famous for its cultural- and medical history votifs, the oldest one dates back to 1483, and closely associated with the Danube transition: votifs depicting to the dangerous and hazardous life of traders and travelers who thanked the grace image for her help in times of need. One votive dating from 1816 shows the largely bare Geiersberg with church (it shows that at time the church had a Baroque onion-shaped Dome) with an accident on the bridge caused by an ice pack on the Danube, and farmers from the fishing village come to his rescue. In the pilgrimage faith source water had an important role: at the “five wounds source”, right next to the Church, the water flows from Christ's wounds, its sculptures date from the first half 17th century, it was believed that the spring water was beneficial to drink or washed with.
