Mariapfarr

We recently went to Mariapfarr, in Austria, for a conference. A very nice place. The text of the Christmas carol “Stille Nacht” (Silent Night) was written there, although the music was composed somewhere else. (This is, however, not why we go there; rather, that after the morning’s lectures, whoso wishes may go skiing on the slopes nearby.) This is what it looked like from down the hill:

My hotel room overlooked the graveyard of the main parish church, the Church of the Assumption of Mary (in the middle of the above picture). I drew two pictures of the graveyard from the comfort of my room:

And down the hill, the church of St. Laurence:
