Things to Do in Oberndorf

Oberndorf is a town right at the border to Germany and internationally famous as the place where "Silent Night" was composed and first performed in the early 19th century. Oberndorf has a nice town centre and is a popular destination for day-trips from Salzburg. A chapel and museum recall the story of Silent Night. Otherwise, Oberndorf has little to offer that would be of interest to international visitors.
