200 year anniversary of a world hit - Ideas for group tours and events

“Silent Night” is a song whose magic has remained uninterrupted for 200 years. 200 years ago, Joseph Mohr, a priest from Salzburg, and Franz Xaver Gruber, an Upper Austrian teacher, sang the song for the very first time at the St. Nikola Church in Oberndorf near Salzburg. Joseph Mohr wrote the original lyrics that the song was based on, whilst Franz Xaver Gruber created the melody upon Mohr’s request. Only a few years later and with the help of the singing families from the Zillertal valley, the song embarked on a journey from Austria to Europe and to the rest of the world. Today, it is sung in more than 300 languages and dialects.


On the occasion of the song’s 200-year anniversary, we have put together attractive activity ideas for a journey into the “Land of Silent Night”, which you will be able to find on the following pages. Individual tours and travel routes take you to the most important destinations in SalzburgerLand, Upper Austria and Tirol, where you can explore the origins of the world-famous Christmas song during any time of the year.
