Silent Night museum in the Pflegerschlössl

Wagrain-Kleinarl has a new museum

Wagrain gets a new museum. Close to the Karl Heinrich Waggerl Haus Museum, also Joseph Mohr and his world famous song Silent Night! are remembered. The Pflegerschlössl, an architectural juwel in a barock style, was lovingly restored, barrier free expanded and complemented by a modern event center.
 

Advent-mood

The whole year in Wagrain-Kleinarl

The Pflegerschlössl is surrounded by a park including a herbal garden and Kneipp facilities. Included in the Wagrain Cultural Walk the way leads to various atmospheric attractions about the culture and history of Wagrain. 

Joseph Mohr

Vicar of Wagrain and composer of “Silent Night”

There may be hardly a Christmas song rooted as deeply in the public mind as “Silent Night, Holy Night”. Joseph Mohr, born in 1792 in Salzburg, wrote this poem in 1816 and had Franz Xaver Gruber add the melody that made it the distinctive Christmas carol that has ever since been a part of every Christmas celebration.

 

In 1837, Joseph Mohr came to Wagrain. As vicar of the community, he henceforth took care of those in need in the Wagrain-Kleinarl region and also had an elementary school built. Mohr died in 1848 in Wagrain, where he is also buried.

"Joseph Mohr, author of the probably most well-known Christmas carol in the world, used to be a vicar and supporter of those in need in Wagrain."
