Mariazell itself was so pretty. We went into the church as well, were the mass was being held in hungarian... apparently the place is a favourite pilgrimage destination in Hungary.
Then we went to buy some touristy gifts for our beloved at home and to drink some hot chocolate in a (apparently famous) cafe. They had an exhibition of extremely cute gingerbread-houses upstairs and also a very stylish bathroom. ^^
The rest of the town, of course, is also extremely pretty and like something out of a childrens book.
When we went back to the car, we were held up by a marching-band and a congregation of binmen and women. Apparently the binmen and women of a whole town had come together to pilgrim here and had also rented a marching band. It was quite a sight, because they all had their workgear, those bright-orange-jackets on, which was a patch of colour in the otherwise greyish weather.
More photos will follow when I get hold of my aunt and her laptop ^^
