Most important place on the pilgrimage in Switzerland. An impressive place, with a magnificent cathedral and monastery. The evening Vesper service with Ave Maria is a must - the singing and organ music followed by a pilgrim's blessing is a highly spiritual experience - even if you do not think much of spirituality.
Absolutely stay in the monastery hostel. The monk's cells are spartan, yet they are very impressive and have an incredible calm. The pilgrim temple with the black Madonna is a must and gives it at the reception of the hostel.
