„Eyne schoene stat …“
is what Bishop Albero from Trier called the scenically beautiful place in the 12th century. From this the name „Schoenstatt“ developed for part of the town of Vallendar, a few kilometres from Koblenz, Germany. Today the name „Schoenstatt“ stands both for the international Marian pilgrimage place and for the worldwide „Apostolic Movement of Schoenstatt“, which has its origin and centre here.
A visit to Schoenstatt’s place of pilgrimage and grace brings blessings, new strength and hope. Many people from all over the world have experienced this for more than 100 years. Here God has chosen and given a place where the Blessed Mother is close and active. We cordially invite you to set out on your journey!
