Maria Fieberbründl is a place of pilgrimage in the village of Kaibing in the municipality of Feistritztal in Eastern Styria .

Founding legend

A legend tells how Maria Fieberbründl got his name and became a place of pilgrimage:

“A hermit built a wooden hut for himself in this lonely forest, in which he also put up a statue of the Virgin Mary. Because of his piety, he was highly trusted. Many came to him for advice, prayed in front of the statue of Mary and drank from the little fountain that flowed beside it. After his death, the wooden hut was converted into a small chapel. Since the water was used particularly against febrile illnesses, it was given the name Fieberbründl. "

Pilgrimage church

The Maria Fieberbründl branch church as a pilgrimage church of the Birth of the Virgin Mary was initially a wooden chapel. In 1879 this was replaced by a stone building by L. Minkovitsch. In the years 1893/94 a prayer hall in the neo-Romanesque style was built according to the plans of H. Lötz, which was connected to the chapel by a transept in 1954. In 1994 a new organ with 17 registers was installed. The interior decoration made of historicized forms includes, among other things, some votive pictures after prayers have been answered. Above the right side entrance there is a life-size protective mantle Madonna made of sandstone by Josef Papst (1953). The paintings in the Bründl Chapel are by Franz Weiss (1978). Every year around 50,000 pilgrims visit the pilgrimage site.

The sacred building, next to a neighboring residential building and a kiosk, is a listed building.
