We had a great tour to the Silent Night chapel. The 4 buses that left were all pretty crowded. Thankfully, we had the best tour guide, Naomi Mogil , and she spoke in both English and German. She gave us all the interesting facts as we headed to Oberndorf. There were a lot of people at the service but not as many as I had thought. The market shops were nice but there were only a few of them. The view from the river was spectacular and we had a wonderful sunset. The service was done mostly in German and Silent Night was only sung in German (we heard the last verse was supposed to be in English). We felt the visit was worth it and I'd recommend it.
