From the Buschniggweg you have a beautiful view of the basilica and the surrounding mountains.

The Buschniggweg is one of the top 10 Mariazeller AUGENblicken: Treat yourself to your personal time out and enjoy the unique panorama at the vantage points of the Mariazeller AUGENblicke. There is time to catch your breath and let your gaze wander into the distance on the panoramic spots of Mariazell.

Author’s recommendation

Follow the path further along the rosary stations to St. Sebastian's Church in St. Sebastian.

Walking time: approx. 50 minutes

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first.

The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
