Sankt Sebastian is a former municipality in the district of Bruck-Mürzzuschlag in the Austrian province of Styria. It lies some 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the north of the important pilgrimage centre of Mariazell. Since the 2015 Styria municipal structural reform, it is part of the municipality Mariazell.[2]

Mariazell railway station, the terminus of the narrow gauge Mariazell line from St Pölten, lies within the municipality. The station is also the terminus of the Museumstramway Mariazell-Erlaufsee, a standard gauge heritage steam tramway that operates to the nearby Erlaufsee.
