• Bernhard AV

Pope Benedict XVI’s visit in 2007 was the most recent papal visit to Austria. In the course of his three-day visit, the Pope visited the Holocaust Memorial on Judenplatz in Vienna, attended a reception at the Vienna Hofburg, celebrated mass at St. Stephen’s Cathedral, visited Heiligenkreuz Abbey and celebrated the 850th anniversary of the foundation of the Basilica of Mariazell. The papal visit generated an enormous media echo, and Bernhard-AV provided the technical equipment for the international media centre.
