Silent Night Chapel Oberndorf...

Experience the unique atmosphere at the very place where the world-famous song "Silent Night! Holy Night!" was sung for the very first time!

The modest, deliberately simple chapel is visited every year by guests from all over the world.

It was consecrated in 1937 after twelve years of construction; it was financed only by donations and stands on the spot where St. Nicola's Church once stood.

In this church, on 24 December 1818, "Silent Night! Holy Night!" was sung for the first time in this church and from there it made its way around the world.

The two windows in the chapel show the song creators Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber.
