Calvary and mountain Georgiberg

The Calvary in Kindberg

One of the most beautiful calvarias in Austria

The Calvary in Kindberg with its church was built at the end of the 16th century and counts to the most beautiful calvarias in Austria. Its example was the Calvary in Graz. Typical is the natural rock out of basalt on which the Calvary and the church are located. Around the church chapels are located, holes and plastics with drawings of the passion ceremony are to see. All together there are 13 stages which show life-sized figures out of wood and stone. Partly they were created by famous artists.
