Berndorf - the sonorous name is supposedly derived from a Bavarian yeoman named Pero, the "strong as a bear". The community was first mentioned in a document in 789, and the first church is said to have been built around 1130.
Around 1440, the present parish church and Anna chapel were built, both in late Gothic style. The tower received its characteristic Baroque onion-shaped helmet in 1684; and as the only church tower in Salzburg's Flachgau region, its spire is not adorned with the usual cross, but with a two-metre-high radiant Madonna. Incidentally, around 1700 the parish church was a much-visited place for pilgrims: numerous people made their way to Berndorf to seek comfort and assistance from the "Radiant Madonna".
Right next to the church: the vicarage with its picturesque "Bärenbrunnen". The Seenland pilgrimage trail starts here and leads through a varied landscape with unforgettable views.
