Mariazell Trappist Mission – Ongeluksnek

Mariazell Mission established in 1894 lies at the head of the fertile Ongeluksnek Valley and in my opinion is one of the more beautiful of the Missions.  The mission still has an operating turbine supplying power to the mission and the mill. The mission has been expertly renovated under the watchful eye of architect Robert Brusse who specializes in heritage renovations.
